National Walk to School Day is Coming

Organize neighborhood walking pairs and groups.
Pay Attention to the behaviors around you.
Never have both earbuds in while walking.
Use the Safe and Sound Strategy!
If you walk home, to stay home on your own,
never show your key in your hand until you use it to enter your home.
Always check to make sure the home is secure before entering.
If you are not sure, seek a safe neighbor for help.
A parent can help manage the safety of their child by teaching safe
practices, pointing out the correct and designated route,
and telling children areas or homes to avoid.

Safe Kids Worldwide is promoting safety for walkers with the following basic strategies-

Look left, then right, then left again when you cross the street.
Cross the street at the corner or at a crosswalk and obey all traffic signals.
Cross the street with an adult until you are at least 10 years old.
Walk on sidewalks or paths, not in the street.
Play in safe areas, away from streets, driveways and parking lots.

Another Hero, someone our students and children can relate to!

20130726-175730.jpgZna Gresham may not think of herself as a hero, but she is certainly being hailed as one.

In a lifesaving catch, the 10-year-old girl caught a baby that was dropped from a second-floor apartment in Decatur, Ga., after the building caught fire, the Associated Press reports.

The family living in the apartment was trapped by the fire, which reportedly started on the ground floor. DeKalb County Fire Battalion Chief Christopher Morrison said the mother had no choice but to drop her three children out the window.

“The smoke was rising so quickly to the upper floors, they couldn’t make their way outside their upper apartment into the hallway because of the smoke. They just went to a window and they threw the child outside to the people, to the neighbors, down on the ground,” Morrison explained to WSB Radio.

Gresham and her sister were standing below, and the 10-year-old managed to catch the 1-month-old before the baby hit the ground. The 2- and 3-year-old children did not fare as well and sustained minor injuries in the fall. All three were transported to a local hospital for treatment, along with two adults who were also hurt in the blaze.

While Gresham made the daring catch, she credited her entire household for helping to save the family trapped in the burning apartment.

“It took all of my family to help get the babies out and help save a family,” Gresham told WSB-TV. “In our family, we take care of our neighbors, no matter what.”

Super Heroes, Let’s Hear it for the Good Guys!

An under cover camera,
Resolute officers training in a bunker to plan an attack,
Timing, timing, timing……
Our FBI and special OPS guys rule the day..
They waited patiently, and when an opportunity presented
Itself, they blew open the bunker and saved the boy.
Super Heroes
Not everyone can do what they did, but it is your job to do your bit,
all of us can pay attention,
be aware of the people round us…see what you can do….
The life you help save , will be a loved person….
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

You too can be a Super Hero
