Seneca East Elementary students participate yearly in a Fire Safety and Prevention Poster Contest sponsored by the State Fire Marshal’s office. The contest encourages students to think about their own homes and safety, and holding the contest yearly allows students to build on their awareness and knowledge about fire prevention as they get older. The state-level winner for this year’s contest was Isabel Stockmaster, a 3rd grade student in Dana Foos’s classroom and daughter of Randy and Heather Stockmaster.
On hand to recognize students and distribute awards from local fire departments were Gina Smith and Shane Vanderveen (Attica-Venice-Reed) and Chris Gosche (Republic).
