Gillispie “Gems” of the Week

Room 2 was visited by a local firefighter this week who taught fire safety and told stories about his life as a firefighter. Lessons included fire safety at home (crawl out as fast as you can) and at school (report to your teacher anyone you see with matches or a lighter). Students also practiced the “stop, drop, and roll” method.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the La Jolla Christmas Parade last Sunday and to the anonymous donors who arranged for our double decker bus ride. Students and parents riding on the bus were delighted to see parade watchers sit straight up in their chairs as our “float” came rolling down the street. We applaud art teacher Mrs. Walters for the cheerful, colorful murals that decorated the bus and music teacher Mrs. Jacobs for leading our choir through a warm-hearted mix of holiday songs.
