Eureka participates in Pillowcase Project
Fourth and fifth graders at Eureka Elementary recently participated in the Pillowcase Project sponsored by the American Red Cross. This project aims to increase awareness and understanding of natural hazards and teaches safety, emotional coping skills and personal preparedness. Students learned about ways to stay safe and how to create their own emergency supply kits by packing essential items in a pillowcase for easy transport during a disaster. Students also had the opportunity to decorate and personalize their pillowcases and share what they’ve learned with friends and family.
