Fun During Career Day at Maple Lawn Elementary
We had a blast with the Rockets during College and Career Day at Maple Lawn Elementary in Dallas, Texas. SERVPRO of North Irving spent the morning talking to the school’s 4th grade classes about the types of experiences SERVPRO technicians experience in the field.
“We talked about fire and water damages and what might cause each of those,” explained Michael Weaver, owner of SERVPRO of North Irving. “The kids talked about natural disasters causing water damages, including tsunamis in Asia. I was really impressed with their depth of knowledge.”
Since our office is also Texas State certified to perform mold remediation, that topic was brought up, too. “Mold is that stuff on old cheese,” one student said.
“And the pizza my brother once left in his room for a week,” another added.
When we took out some personal protective equipment and asked for volunteers to put it on, a lot of hands went up--including the teacher’s. As the students giggled when their teacher put on a full kit, other student volunteers also put on smaller pieces of the equipment. With cries of Fight the Mold! and Ghostbusters! everyone was ready to go to work.
“Ultimately, we just wanted to remind the kids to stay safe,” said Michael. “It was a really fun day for us, and we hope to be invited back.”
“The Weavers are amazing to volunteer their time and talents to come to speak to our students on College and Career Day,” said Stacy Owens, Counselor at Maple Lawn. “They are passionate advocates for SERVPRO and their integrity is evident. I would trust them with any clean-up that I may need in the future.”
