Green Ribbon Week at Art City

Submitted by julia.murray on Thu, 09/27/2012 - 14:38

September 24-28 will be Art City's Green Ribbon Week. Green Ribbon Week focuses on preventing pedestrian and automobile injuries. Children are at greater risk for pedestrian related injuries due to their small size and inability to judge distances and vehicle speeds.

Please have your child use the green ribbon that was sent home to tie on their bag or backpack as a reminder that green means "go" safely while traveling on the streets.

The upcoming events for the week are as follows:

Monday: Poster Contest
Bring your poster Monday morning! Posters should focus on safe practices for walking, biking, or riding scooters to school. Any medium can be used such as crayons, colored pencils, paint or collage.

Tuesday: "Step It Up"
Wear mismatched shoes and socks today! Also sign the pledge posters on the outside of the school pledging safe practices while walking to and from school.

Wednesday: "It's Really COOL to Walk to School"
Show your support of Green Ribbon Week by walking to school today!

Thursday: "It's Not CRAZY to be Safe"
Crazy hair day!

Friday: "Green Day"
Wear green today! A drawing will be held for prizes today in an assembly.
