ROCKWOOD, MO (KMOV.com) – The Rockwood School District hosted its 14th annual “Parents as Teachers Vehicle Day” on Saturday.
“Part of the reason we do this event is just so the kids can get that hands on look at the vehicles,” said Barbara Rogers, Parent Educator for the Rockwood School District. “We also had firefighters and paramedics here in their uniforms hoping to help children understand that (they) are not scary.”
There were fire trucks, ambulances, and one of the News 4 Live Trucks at the event. Officials say the event started with about 6 vehicles, but has grown to 30 and provides a wide variety for children to experience.
