PreK students learn about community

Mrs. Bellamy’s PreK classes visited several locations, including the Cedar Springs Fire Department this week.

The students in Rhonda Bellamy’s all-day pre-kindergarten class at Cedar Trails took a community walk through downtown Cedar Springs this week. Mrs. Bellamy explained that the students have been learning about community helpers, and what it means to be part of a community. “We talked about being part of a family, and then a classroom, and then a community,” she explained.

The preschoolers visited the police station and fire station to learn about safety. Bellamy said that some students were scared of the firefighter. “A fireman put on all his equipment so they could see it was a real person under there. We showed them it was a real person, and told them that if a firefighter ever came into their home, not to hide from him,” she explained.

They got to hear a couple of stories at the library, and then went on to the U.S. Post Office, where they mailed a postcard to themselves that they had decorated at school.

They then stopped at Hungry Howies, where they played with the dough, then bought pizzas and took them to Morley Park to eat for lunch.

It was quite an event for some of the smallest members of our community!
