So Admiral-based Engine 29 pulls into the Lafayette Elementary schoolyard this afternoon:
No fire, but there was a sense of urgency. The entire school was out on the playground, watching the engine come to a stop:
Then a woman in a firefighter’s hat bounded out of the engine.
We knew the secret – it was actually Lafayette’s new principal Shauna Heath, who used the first assembly of the school year for a “dramatic entrance” to announce the year’s theme: “Lafayette is on fire!” (As in, burning for learning, etc.) She and some of her staff were also wearing T-shirts with another slogan – “Only the best is good enough.”
Hot day – apropos to the theme – so the kids (and staff!) weren’t kept out too long; they got a pep talk and then it was back to class.
Sorry, comment time is over.
