Primary School Safety Scout Program Celebrates More than 15 Years
Mister Rogers once said, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” The Primary School is proud to celebrate its important helpers, Safety Scouts!
The VPS Safety Scout program was started more than 15 years ago as a way to provide leadership opportunities for students. Interested third-grade children can complete an application, go through training, and then support student safety during student arrival and dismissal times for approximately one month during the year.
VPS Principal, Jen Check said Safety Scouts are assigned strategic, socially distanced posts outside and inside the building. “Their role is to assist in the safety of our students by making sure their classmates are acting in a responsible and respective way as they enter and exit the building.”
Congratulations to the following third-grade students who were selected as this month's Safety Scouts: Alex En, Melina Andris, Lia Holtz, Cayden Graham, Ellie McCarthy, Jayden Hoad, Riley Bailey, Gia Arbore, Kaytlyn Fredereksen, Arda Ekener-Le, Nicoleta Dobrot, Jack Fratto, Kylie Ford, Rawan Althamiree, Grayson Potter, Connor McDougal, Anjana Yogesh, Gianna Pierce, Elise Randall, Elise Reidy, Emily Smith, Julia Viets, Dante Ross, Lily LaRue, Greyson Sabbout, Conner Oglesby, Abby Stewart, Norah Steward, Addalyn Graziadei, Jenna Repich, Violet Sheridan, and Christopher Ike.
