[ARCHIVED] KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS TO WEAR T SHIRTS ENCOURAGING MOTORISTS TO DRIVE 20 MPH AROUND SCHOOL ZONES

LEE JACKSON SCHOOL KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS TO WEAR T SHIRTS ENCOURAGING MOTORISTS TO DRIVE 20 MPH AROUND SCHOOL ZONES


Are you concerned about speeding near schools? The Lee F. Jackson School (part of the Greenburgh Central school disdtrict), town of Greenburgh and Xposure after school program are planning to involve kindergarten students in the effort to encourage safe driving. Motorists are supposed to drive 20 MPH near schools but many motorists drive faster. What are we planning to do?


Xposure Foundation Inc. and the Xposure Greenburgh Afterschool Program are pleased to announce that that they are donating 150 designed and printed T-Shirts featuring the 20 MPH Safe Driving message to children attending the Lee F. Jackson School.


This back to school public safety initiative, featuring the 150 donated printed Safe Driving T-Shirts is a result of the collaborative efforts of Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, GCSD Superintendent, Dr. Tahira A. DuPree Chase, Lee F. Jackson Principal Patricia Simone, Lina Amendola and the Xposure Greenburgh Afterschool Program.


“A shared priority on safety underscores our collective focus on the overall well-being of the children of Greenburgh.” - Greenburgh Central School District Superintendent Dr. Tahira A. DuPree Chase


“In order to educate the whole child, we need to ensure that they are safe first” - Lee F. Jackson , Principal Patricia Simone


Scott Schindler, a creative director who has worked with Supervisor Paul Feiner over the years, developed the idea for the Safe Driving shirts because he was concerned that cars were traveling far faster than the speed limit on many roads near schools. Scott felt that a bold reminder of the speed limit on the backs and fronts of runners t-shirts would get drivers attention and encourage them to reduce their speed. If a motorist sees a child with a tee shirt on it the cars may slow down.


“Supervisor Feiner proposed the initiative last spring. Donating the printed T-shirts was our way of saying Thank You to the Greenburgh community” states Ray Thomas, Executive Director Xposure Foundation Inc.


To broaden the reach of the Town of Greenburgh’s Safe Driving campaign, Xposure Foundation Inc. is extending the use of our direct to garment printer to print more of these wonderful shirts to any school or organization interested. The cost to purchase the printed shirts is a $4 donation per shirt which includes a donation letter. Donations will be used to support the Xposure Greenburgh After-school program. If you are interested please email Ray Thomas at Rthomas@XposureSchools.com and write Safe Driving in the Subject line.


Students will receive the t shirts this Thursday. A big thank you to the Greenburgh School district, Xposure program for their help in promoting pedestrian safety. We don’t want to see any child injured because of a careless driver.
