Fourth-graders help KDOT celebrate Kansas Day!

In a pre-celebration of Kansas Day, last Friday, 17 Chanute fourth-graders arrived at the southeast District KDOT office bearing unique gifts. 

These creative students from Chanute shared what they loved about Kansas with KDOT crews in southeast Kansas last Friday. 

Each student had crafted a small collage of photos showing what he or she loved most about Kansas, ranging from animals to sunflowers to EVERYTHING!

The clever collages are now displayed in the office window. During the visit the kids also gathered at the front flagpole to switch out the weather-worn official Kansas State Flag with a new state flag. Assisted by district staff, they toured a dump truck and then posed in the parking lot appropriately outfitted with safety vests, hard hats and sign paddles.

Chanute fourth-graders toured the southeast Kansas District Office and wore safety vests while holding up signs frequently used in the job. 
 Although outdoor conditions were chilly, the field trip to KDOT ended on a warm note. Class members returned to the office lobby for juice, cookies and goody bags containing Kansas highway maps before boarding the bus back to school.
