Students Participate in Safety Program

Creative Safety Products and the City of Moundsville partnered Friday to present the “Officer Phil Safety Program” at McNinch Primary School.

Students in kindergarten through 2nd grade were not only informed but entertained by Mr. Tristan about the importance of positive behavior such as honesty, friendship and being a “Superhero” not a bully.

Mr. Tristan used puppet characters Icy the Penguin and Buddy the Bulldog along with magic during the 30 minute interactive assembly to enhance the lesson. Students were taught they don’t need a fancy costume to be a “Superhero” but just need do what’s right all the time.

Lessons about being the best person they can, in addition to always being respectful, responsible and safe will be reinforced in each classroom.  Mr. Tristan gave every teacher grade appropriate workbooks to do follow-up activities both at school and home.

The main objective of the program, since its inception in 1975, is to educate students about a variety of safety aspects such as stranger danger, the negative effects of bullying and what to do in an emergency.
