ASK: 2nd Grade Walking Trip

On June 9, the second-grade students from ASK connected with their community. They experienced Port Jervis in a new and exciting way. At the fire station, the students learned about fire safety and the importance of fire drills at home. They learned about the equipment that is used to fight fires and were reminded of the stop, drop, and roll situation. At the police station, they learned about the 911 service and stranger danger. They also got to meet Rowan the K-9 police dog. They spoke to car 5 from the dispatch center and were able to try on some police attire. Each student became a Junior Police Officer that day. At the library, they learned about the summer program and how to apply for their very own library card. Stop by the library with your child to get an application. During the visit to M&T Bank, the students were taught fun facts about money.  At the US Post Office, students were introduced to the life cycle of a letter/package and were able to see the different routes of the mail service through Google Maps.  They also were able to get a tour of this unique building. They ended their exciting day with a well-deserved trip to Ben’s Fresh for ice cream before heading back to school. Thank you to the Port Jervis community for opening their doors to the ASK Second Grade.
