Kids were all fired up at Lowe’s Saturday for the Ruston Fire Department, Ruston Police and Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Safety Day. They learned about fire safety and prevention, gun and seat belt safety.
Louisiana Tech University School of Nursing Students volunteered their time at the event while also getting practice taking blood pressure.
Nearby, firefighter Cade Griswold manned an ambulance to show children what was inside.
“Some of the kids don’t want to see,” he said. “They’re kind of scared of it.”
The holiday season is very special in our music classes. Each grade level learns new Christmas songs. The kindergarten classes sing “Jingle Bells” and play the sleigh bells while trotting around the room like horses. The first grade enjoys “Rudolph,” and they play a bell pattern along with the music. Second graders are learning to follow the words of Christmas songs including “Jolly Old St. Nicholas,” “A Time for Love” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
