Rotary Dictionary and Dairy Princess
October 19, 2018 was an exciting day for Tully Elementary School’s third graders! They were recipients of

Club. For 15 years, these groups have generously purchased dictionaries and visited TES to present them to students.

give us our milk. Did you know that every day a cow drinks the amount of water that would fill a bathtub?! Thank you to
Sydney for her time, knowledge, and the pencils she brought for us

students what firefighters look and sound like with their oxygen masks on! TES students now know to use the back of their hand when feeling
if a door is safe to go out of and to stay low if there is a lot of smoke in a room. The Tully Fire Department taught us all some great ways to stay
safe in case a fire or emergency happens. Ways to conduct fire safety at home: Come up with a home emergency evacuation plan as a family
and practice it. (Where will you all meet once out of the house safely – neighbors, ...
