Williams Kindergarten Students received a special treat prior to the last day of school – a visit from the Williams Fire and Police Departments and a field trip to local businesses.
“The week long activity included at trip for gelato at Granzella’s and a lesson in bread making and a sweet treat from La Fortuna Bakery,” said Williams Kindergarten Teacher, Keri Lovelady, “It was absolutely delicious and the students had a blast.”
Both Granzella’s and LaFortuna provided treats for the children at little to no cost.
“We are so lucky to have these wonderful restaurants in our community,” said Lovelady.
Later in the week, the Williams Police Department visited the students to discuss safety.
“They brought along K-9 Rowdy for an amazing demonstration,” said Lovelady, “Rowdy showed off his skills and ability follow commands while chasing a ‘bad guy’ in a bite suit.”
At the end of the demonstration, the children were allowed to pet Rowdy.
“It is a memory the students will treasure,” Lovelady commented.
The Williams Fire Department made a special appearance and discussed fire safety.
“The students interacted with the fire equipment and practiced ‘stop-drop-and-roll,’” said Lovelady, “the children even practiced shouting for help.”
Lovelady commented that the children also practiced exiting a building while holding onto a fireman in full gear.
“Last but not least, the kids had the opportunity to take a ride in the fire trucks,” said Lovelady, “including lights and sirens!”
The Williams Kindergarten Students received a special experience during their last week of school, one they are sure not to forget.
“We are extremely grateful to have the service officers in our community,” said Lovelady.
