This was a first for me! I usually visit schools to talk about weather, talk about safety, or talk about science in general. Friday morning at Central Elementary School in Ryland was special because I actually got to help the kids who spend their time helping others when the weather isn’t quite so nice outside.
These students make up the Central Elementary Safety Patrol.

These young men and women stuck it out through the rain and wind and got the job done. That’s when sponsor Kasi St. Clair sent me a message asking for some nice umbrellas. We were happy to help!
