Hiawatha Elementary has been given an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) by Mercy Medical Center. An AED is a device that may save a life in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). It is located in the main foyer by the door to the gym.
Some of our Hiawatha students were able to take part in a project put on by our City of Cedar Rapids. Students worked on creating and painting the design on a Cedar Rapids snow plow blade that will later be used for snow removal this winter. Keep a watchful eye out for some really bright and colorful designs coming your way on the streets of Cedar Rapids this winter!
The fire department conducts a year long unit with all third graders at Hiawatha School. Recently the students were able to see a fire truck up close and learn more about fire safety.
