I have some great news!
Our PTA was selected to receive a $500 grant for the National PTA’s Take Your Family to School Week Program. This National PTA Program is sponsored by the AXA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company, and a Proud National Sponsor of PTA.
This grant was awarded to 100 PTAs across the US to increase family engagement and safety awareness. This year’s theme is Safety at Home and at Play.
Our goal is to provide you with some tools to help increase awareness on safety at home and at play. I encourage you to spend some time with your family and review the hands-on activities provided below.
Lesson plans include: Fire, burns, and scalds prevention, Fire Escape Map, Playground safety, Poison Prevention; home, fire, and playground safety.
- “Look alikes” – poison prevention
- “Cycling skills clinic” – bike safety
- “Get low and go” – fire, burns and scalds prevention
- “Fire escape map” – fire, burns and scalds prevention
- “Safety sleuths” – playground safety
- “The ultimate playground” – playground safety contest
In addition, a Family Tip Sheet will be sent home for you to share and review with your family. With the grant we received, we will be purchasing educational materials and safety supplies to reinforce the lessons above and increase awareness.
We hope that you find this program valuable and we appreciate your continued support of our PTA.
Thank you for your supporting our programs,
PTA President, 2012-2013
