Firefighters Receive Thanks, Artwork from KinderCare Preschoolers


This holiday season, Portland firefighters received special messages and pictures from preschoolers at the Clay Street KinderCare. Ms. Abby and her young students, age three to five years, had been learning about firefighters and ways to stay safe.

To show their appreciation to the firefighters, preschool students Emma, Rachel, Jacob, Jack, Ellee, Laurel, Andrew, Clara, and Julia drew pictures with simple messages:

“I like you…thank you!”

“Thank you for keeping me safe!”

“Thank you for saving me in the big fire!”

“Thank you for spraying water on the fires!”

“Thank you for protecting us!”

“Thank you for getting us safe!”

A big hello and thank you to Ms. Abby’s preschool class for the great artwork and messages sent to the firefighters!

That is amazing!!! This shows that there is still hope for the youth in today's society. What did they do with the drawings, and thank yous?

I love kids, they always know what to say when someone is sad. They have a great spirit about them. They always want to be loving towards people.
