Can you hear the siren? Do you see the lights? The Delaware City Fire Department sent truck 15-5 to Red Lion for Fire Safety Day. Fireman Bill Hart gave students a tour of the truck and reviewed fire safety rules. This special unit taught children what to do in case they are ever in a fire emergency. Most of us know the basics, stop, drop, and roll, stay low in a smoky room, dial 911, etc. but even more important if you are three or four and scared, NO HIDING! What a great day preparing students for emergencies and taking away a little bit of fear so that children can stay safe.
Smiles abound as students get to know each other and build new friendships. This is seen here in the joyful faces of two fourth grade students. Students sometimes come to Red Lion as older elementary students. New students transition quickly and are readily accepted into the student body. New friends and old friends are one family at Red Lion, and in Christ Jesus.
Outside the Capital Building in Colonial Williamsburg, Eight grade students step back in time to experience life just prior to the Revolutionary War. Memorable trips like this help us hold dear our rights and responsibilities, as US citizens, and strengthen relationships that will hopefully last a lifetime.
