Reading and Fire Safety

Hawthorn Elementary North second graders recently visited Brookdale at Hawthorn Lakes Retirement Community to share what they have learned about Fire Safety from Fireman Tony Rodkey.

The residents of Brookdale then read a story to the second graders titled No Dragons for Tea, which is highly recommended by the National Fire Protection Association due to the fire safety message in the story.  The students enjoyed listening to the story and sharing their own knowledge about fire safety with the residents.

Fireman Tony, as the students know him, of the Countryside Fire Protection District, educates students in grades K-12 about fire and life safety.
