Actually, it was just a fire drill. Throughout the year, we run several drills to help ensure the safety of our students in case something actually happens. The students were prepared for this drill. The teachers went over our emergency procedures before we pulled the fire alarm. The next fire drill will be a surprise for the students, but the teachers will know. And then the drill after that, no one will know except me and the guards. Coincidentally, the fire department was practicing their own drill in the building next to ours, so the students got to see the firemen in action after all.
You can check out a bit of the drill on our school’s Facebook page, not to mention other things happening at our school. Our revised Mathematics curriculum in action, art students creating line monsters, and a unique artistic performance by one of our highly creative students, to name a few.
