School Counselors Instructor: Mrs. Leischner, Mrs. Snipes
Hello Safety Patrol and News Crew Parents,
I hope you're enjoying these final weeks of summer. I am looking forward to working with your children this year as safety patrols and/or news crew members! Here's the summer training schedule:
Thursday, August 27th Bristow Run Elementary Library
10-12: Training for Safety Patrols and pizza lunch
11-12: Training for News Crew and pizza lunch
Parents do not need to stay for the meeting. Please plan to drop off and pick up your child at the school. Training will begin and end promptly at the designated time(s) in the library. If your child has any food allergies to pizza, please let me know so I can plan for an alternate snack/lunch.
During this training, Safety Patrols will receive their belts and News Crew will receive their schedule. If patrols have memorized their pledge, they can earn their badge at this time too. All other patrols need to memorize and recite their pledge by Sept. 10.
The Safety Patrol Pledge
I promise to do my best to:
• Report for duty on time
• Perform my duties faithfully
• Strive to prevent accidents
• Always set a good example
• Obey my teachers and officers of the Patrol
• Report dangerous student practices
• Strive to earn the respect of fellow students
The training for the Safety Patrols will include information about the program and about safety and being a role model student at all times. The training for the News Crew will include a demonstration of the equipment and information about being a role model student as well. Mrs. Snipes (School Counselor) and I will be conducting the trainings.
Thank you again for allowing your child to participate in these awesome organizations! I look forward to working with your child this year!
