Meet SAGES' Learning Partner is a monthly segment showcasing the valuable people, businesses, and groups who contribute to the success of our school. For July and August, we’re highlighting Fire Chief, Aaron Paul and the Fox Lake Fire Department!
Chief Paul and several others in the Fox Lake Fire Department have supported SAGES in a variety of ways over the years. In the summer months, they help us keep our Community Garden thriving by using their tanker truck to fill our large water bins at our garden site on the corner of Spring and Crocker Streets. They also have no objections to SAGES hosting our Craft Fair & Bake Sale in conjunction with their annual Classic Car Show held next door to school at Fireman’s Park. (*A wonderful family event set for Saturday, July 27, 2019.)
In the fall, Chief Paul has opened the doors to the Fire House for many Field Study Trips by SAGES learners. Plus, this past winter, the Fire Department allowed Alliant Energy to house their training demo equipment at the Fire House for a few days following the fire fighters training night. This afforded our 4th, 5th, & 6th graders the chance to simply walk next door for a highly engaging educational presentation demonstrating how to stay safe around power lines and so much more!
Chief Paul, your willingness to entertain and assist SAGES with our special requests is so appreciated! Thank you, Chief Aaron Paul and the Fox Lake Fire Department!!!
