Crossing Guard Appreciation Week, November 14-18, 2016

The Resource Center is proud to sponsor Georgia Crossing Guard Appreciation Week November 14-18, 2016.  

Schools and communities are encouraged to use this week-long celebration to recognize the role that Crossing Guards play in helping keep our students safe as they walk and bicycle to school!

Consider one or more of the following event ideas and resources to help with your Crossing Guard Appreciation Week efforts

Have your students, parents, and other adults sign Thank You cards for your crossing guard(s)

Feature your crossing guard(s) in your school’s newsletter or on the website

Organize a Meet and Greet event for your families to get to know your crossing guard(s)

Invite your crossing guard to speak with classes about pedestrian safety

Work with your school’s PTO or PTA to provide breakfast for the crossing guard(s)

Create a banner and hang it up at each crossing guard’s post before s/he arrives for work as a surprise!
