The first graders started their PBL on Safety this week. They will be researching safety topics and writing an informative book on the topic of their choice.
Eileen Brown, one of our Van Meter bus drivers talked with the first grade classes on how to be safe on a bus. Thanks Eileen for giving us some great safety tips!
On Monday, the first graders visited the Waukee Police Department. They had a lot of fun touring the police station and talking with some of the officers.
The Waukee Fire Station was another stop for our students on Monday. They had a blast walking through the fire trucks and learning about fire safety. Thanks to Josie's mom for volunteering to go with us!
