Today was our school's Race for Education and family cookout. This is such a fun day for all the children and their families. The children helped raise over $47,000 (so far) for the school and had a blast doing it. We walked/jogged/ran around Marquette Park for an hour and then ate hamburgers or hot dogs. Here are some pictures of our fun filled day.

Today Les Passes came and talked to the children about fire safety and problem solving using puppets. They taught the children a stop, drop and roll song that has hand motions with it. Then two of the puppets were fighting over a movie that they bought together. The children had a chance to help them problem solve and came up with some great solutions. We learned SO much and had a great time doing it.
