Four Star Express prekindergarten students enjoy fire truck visit and picnic

Four Star Express prekindergarten students enjoy fire truck visit and picnic

Community Education’s Four Star Express prekindergarten students, parents and staff from two elementary schools (Cedar Island and Oak View) gathered outdoors at Oak View Elementary School on May 23 for an on-site field trip featuring a fire truck and a meet-and-greet with firefighters from the City of Maple Grove’s Fire Department. Afterwards, families enjoyed an outdoor picnic on the school lawn.

Students expressed delight at the opportunity to see the fire truck up close, sharing that the firefighters' gear, the truck's horn, water pump and hose were some of their favorite things to explore. 

This event provided students and families the opportunity to connect with Four Star Express staff, fostering a welcoming school-to-home connection that encouraged a sense of belonging and community engagement at school.

The day was marked by beautiful weather for staff, students and families to enjoy celebrating together.
