Mendel Honors Fire Fighters

Ernest F. Mendel faculty, staff and student body recently honored the Houston Firefighters from Station 34, shift D. Students from each grade level participated in baking a variety of cookies and put them in decorated tins.

They also made posters, cards and wrote letters sharing their appreciation for them and the job they do. The firemen brought out a ladder truck and an engine truck for the students to learn about. It was a great way for the school to share in the Make A Difference Day project that the school district supports each year. Mrs. Jamie DeGeorge, Principal presented a plaque to firefighters Joe Kittrell, Randall Currie, E.O., and Bruce Wisniewski, Captain. Bottom row, left to right are third graders Daniel Montez, Juan Parra, Angela Juarez, and Fernando Garcia.
