Target 4 – Engaged Community Partners. FWSU staff and students will collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize ideas and learning with local, regional, state, and global partners to make a difference in their community, state, and world.
Action Step – Develop partnerships with global partners to carry out a project related to units of study.
Indicator of Success – Students are engaged with local resources and create community learning “labs” based on projects.
In keeping with longstanding tradition, Fletcher Elementary students practiced the “Stop, Drop, and Roll” as part their study of personal safety. Chris Langlois of the Cambridge Fire Department has been sharing his knowledge about Fire Safety since his daughter Ashley was enrolled at FES – over 15 years ago!
And Firefighter Langlois was not alone! He brought along Sparky the Firedog to teach the students about the importance of safety and what do to do when you see a fire.
“Sparky” is former FES student Brenden Blair. Brenden is a senior at BFA Fairfax and has volunteered with the Cambridge Fire Department throughout High School. Brenden is an example of the student leadership that we celebrate at BFA.
We appreciate our community partners who support students and share their knowledge with young learners.
