GLE students thank community heroes

 In honor of the 10th anniversary of 9-11 attacks, Grant's Lick 2nd and 3rd graders arranged to visit Southern Campbell Fire Dept., Campbell County Police Dept, Alexandria Police Dept, and Alexandria Fire Department to thank them for being our community's first responders.  Each of the second and third grade classes produced a book telling why our firefighters and police officers are heroes.  The students then gave each location apple pies provided by our parents.  In preparation for the trip each of our classes spent some time discussing 9-11 in an age appropriate way focusing on the heroic acts of firefighters and police officers.  One third grader made the connection that as people were running away from the towers, firefighters and police officers were running toward them.
