Earlier this school year, through the Massapequa Fire Department, Massapequa students in kindergarten through third grade were invited to participate in a fire prevention poster contest. This year's theme - "Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The plan also focuses on what a home escape plan entails and the value of practicing it. The students drew posters of scenes representing fire safety and exiting homes safely. Winning students received trophies and award certificates from the Massapequa Fire Department for their work. East Lake School had 12 winners, including 2 District winners.
