Shell Beach Elementary School third grade students are sending lots of love and appreciation to firefighters across California.

Teachers Mrs. Harvey and Ms. Ray asked their students to write thank-you messages to firefighters using a new Google app called Jamboard that they are using for distance learning.

One student named Taylor wrote: "stay safe, get those fires out and come home very soon."

Another student named Kinsey sent this message to crews: "I know there are a lot of fires right now but I am believing in you."

KSBY spoke with two of the students via Zoom about their school assignment.

Ella Schiesl said she thought the assignment was a good thing to do.

"I told them, thank you for putting out our fires and keeping us safe and that we hope they can come home soon to their houses and families if they are currently fighting a fire," Schiesl said.

Tessa Morales thanked the firefighters for their efforts to save and help animals fleeing the flames.

"I really appreciate them and love them for taking out all the fires because they could get badly hurt doing that but they are doing it to save us," said Morales.

The teachers sent their messages to Cal Fire SLO to thank them for everything they do, especially for saving their school during the Avila Fire in June.
