Our kindergarten students recently spent the day at West Farm Corn Maze in Moncks Corner. They participated in fun fall activities such as a corn maze and a hay ride pulled around the farm by a huge tractor. They fed farm animals that included goats, pigs, cows and sheep. The kids were all smiles as they were able to pick out their own pumpkin to decorate with stickers and bring home. They were fascinated to learn about the life cycle of pumpkin plants. Kindergarten students finished the day with a picnic lunch and lots of play time in the corn pit and a maze made out of hay. The day was filled with all kinds of great learning activities outside of the classroom!
All the PCA preschool classes enjoyed a visit from the firemen to learn all about fire safety! The firemen showed us all their fire equipment and explained the purpose of wearing their uniform and gear.
The firemen talked about the importance of:
Developing a home fire escape plan for your family;
Making sure you have a working smoke detector in your home; and
Knowing the importance of staying away from things that are hot to avoid burns.
All of the children enjoyed climbing through the fire truck to see how the vehicle looks on the inside! To thank our firemen for their service to the community, we collected snacks and drinks for the fire station. Thank you to the local Fire Department for the visit to our school to make sure we all stay safe!
