Pre-Kindergarten Students learn about Community Helpers!

SGE Pre-Kindergarten students have been learning about Community Helpers. They have learned job titles, job responsibilities and the tools that our Community Helpers use. The students have even done some serious thinking about what they want to be when they grow up. Along with the help of the Public Works Departments at the City of Burnet, the Burnet Police Department, the Department of Public Safety, Smart Smiles Dentists, Herman Brown Public Library Staff, the Burnet Fire Department and Al Clawson Disposal Inc.; our PreK students have had several opportunities to see Community Helpers up-close. Students have talked with real life Community Helpers and have seen their equipment in action. Our partnership with the above mentioned agencies has brought our books and learning in the classroom to life!
