North View Elementary school’s safety patrols have been the leaders of their peers for the 2018/2019 school year and were celebrated by the school and the North View PTA Thursday, May 9. The PTA hosted a pizza and ice cream party for the safety patrols and were gifted with Clarksburg Splash Zone and mini-golf passes by Clarksburg City Parks Park Board Commissioner, John Cooper. The City of Clarksburg and Clarksburg City Parks continue to be partners in education.
The six (6) safety patrols exhibit leadership, responsibility, and are role models who focus on safe school practices. The patrols have been tasked with setting the standards for their peers to follow not only academically but morally, to help their peers make the right choices. The school’s safety patrols are mentors for the school’s Kindergarten students, and visit those classrooms regularly to read to the students. According to the patrols, younger students are always excited to see them during the school day and make sure to wave to them in the hallway.
The Safety Patrols go through a safety training course before heading out to assist in morning drop off and afternoon pickup. The Patrols are responsible for their duties no matter the condition of the weather, and are equipped with the necessary attire to perform those duties.
The patrols receive a Safety Patrol Report Card that grades the way they perform their patrol duties. Patrols are also awarded rankings such as lieutenant and sergeant. The patrols who go above and beyond their required duties and show constant improvement in their duties are awarded ranking.
The Safety Patrol program has been in existence since North View Elementary was originated. Four (4) of the six (6) patrols will be attending Mountaineer Middle School and two (2) will be attending Washington Irving Middle School. The patrols will continue to perform their duties as patrols until the end of the school year.
