Saying “No” to Strangers  thumbnail138698

Students from Edith L. Slocum Elementary School recently welcomed Patrick Chierichella of the Rose Brucia Educational Foundation who spoke to students about informative strategies on avoiding strangers. 

During the presentation, Mr. Chierichella and his staff talked to the students about being aware of their surroundings, who they interact with and how to make decisions that will ultimately keep them safe. Using a series of engaging skits and characters, students participated in strategies that would minimize the chances of interacting with a stranger.  

Founded by Matthew J. Barbis after a tragic event, the Rose Brucia Safety Awareness program focuses on educating elementary-level students on the concepts of awareness, safety and trust.
