Safe Routes to School assemblies provide children with a fun and entertaining environment through which they are educated about the basic tenets of traffic safety. Assemblies are a way to get children excited about being safe while riding their bicycle, skateboard, or scooter.
Street Smarts Assemblies are presented in the school auditorium for the following grade levels with a specific focus:
Kindergarten through 2nd grade: New “Safety Dan,” the traffic man, demonstrates and educates children on how to ride a bike and walk as a pedestrian safely.
3rd through 5th grade: Bike and pedestrian safety is reinforced in an upbeat manner with the message primarily emphasizing the importance of wearing a helmet, abiding street signs and bike lanes as a cyclist and also being careful when walking in crosswalks and in parking lots. .
Check with your local school for scheduled assembly dates and times.
