Thank you to Ms. Patricia Crawford and the Red Cross for visiting our school this week. After sharing how the Red Cross helps their communities, Ms. Crawford discussed fire safety and how to be careful this winter.

Horizon Springfield 3rd-5th grade students took part in the Disney sponsored pillowcase project. This program came about after Hurricane Katrina and teaching children proper coping skills and how to be prepared in the event of a natural disaster.

Each student received an informational workbook and a pillowcase to create their own emergency kit. Students loved decorating and personalizing their own pillowcase. They are urged to share what they learned with their families to stay prepared.
