Here are a few more pics of "Fire Escape Plan" Contest winners and Mrs. Fink and winning Kindergarten class. Thank you to NCES students, staff, and families who got involved and to our Nauvoo Fire Dept. for their partnership and support!
NCES partnered with Nauvoo Fire Dept. to do a "Fire Escape Plan" Contest. Over 60 NCES students chose to participate! This contest achieved the Fire Dept's goal of encouraging more families to plan/prep for fire emergencies. These NCES students were selected as individual winners: PreK-Quinn Dickerson, Kindergarten-Canyon Huston, 1st Grade-Maisie Grange, 2nd Grade-Craig Bodily, 3rd Grade-Mesa Kohl, 4th Grade-Miles Aitchison, 6th Grade-Kat Aitchison. The winners and their families got breakfast at the Nauvoo Fire Station and after the winners got a ride to school in a fire truck. Also, Mrs. Fink's Kindergarten Class had the most participation with 100% of the students participating! They got a pizza party and visit from Marshall. Thank you to Chief Gallaher and Nauvoo Fire Dept. for partnering with NCES students and families for this cool community event. Check out pics and more pics will be posted for this event and the people involved.

The training isn't scheduled until December 22, but we wanted to give you a heads up to allow time to mark your calendars.
