First Grade had a study of communities in Social Studies the first six weeks. We learned about how we can help our community and about the community helpers we have in Earth and Springlake. We invited Nick Casarus, our local city policeman to come talk to us. He explained the requirements for his job and his daily duties. He told us how to call 911 when we have some type of emergency and what to expect from the fire department, ambulance service and policemen. Thank you, Mr. Casarus, for coming to school and for the nice pencils you gave us.
