Fire Prevention Program at Crescent Elementary School

Crescent Elementary students were delighted to host the Crescent Volunteer Fire Department on Wednesday, October 7 at 10 AM.  In coordination with fire safety week, the CVFD provided a great presentation about fire safety, provided a coloring book to each of our students to take home and assisted us with a fire drill.  Mrs. Hannah Smith, our 5th grade teacher, participated in a contest with one of the fire men – who could get the fire equipment on fastest!  And guess who won?  Mrs. Smith!  They don’t call us Roadrunners for nothing.  A great program with a lot of fantastic information was enjoyed by every one!  Watch for us in the Council Bluffs Nonpariel also.
