Captain Brent Darger, a search and rescue firefighter for Task Force One during 9/11 (Miss Judd's uncle), came to speak to the 3rd grade last week. He spoke about his experiences as he joined shoulder to shoulder to search for survivors, recover the deceased, and rebuild the devastation at Ground Zero. His message emphasized that although times of tragedy are heartbreaking and sorrowful, they bring the nation greater unity and strength in the end. We are grateful for the service and sacrifice Captain Darger offered in the frightening days following the attack. He is a true hero.
Andrew Martineau, a local scout, helped replace and replenish the emergency bins with fresh water, granola bars, candy, blankets and a flashlight in each classroom in case of an emergency where students would need to stay in their classrooms for an extended period of time. He and other scouts removed the old expired products and replaced them with the new ones so we can feel safe and prepared at our school. Thank you for thinking of us for your Eagle Scout Project.
