2nd Graders get a visit from the National Guard and learn a thing or two about firefighting.


The second grade classes have been learning about firefighters and how they help our community.  Amy Mathew spoke up and told me her father was in the National Guard and was a firefighter.  She proceeded to take the story home to her father Sargent Mathews.  He called me and was willing to visit with the children about what he does. 
Sargent Mathews and Sergent Yei presented pictures of what life would be like in Afghanistan.  They talked about their job as firefighters and how hard they work.  They brought they heavy uniforms with them and allowed the children to feel the weight. 
It was a delight to have them come talk with us.  We are so grateful for men and women that fight for our freedom.  Thanks to all!
