[ARCHIVED] Highview 3rd grader's prepare PSA on pedestrian safety

7th grader from Edgemont also encourages pedestrians to wear reflectors, carry flashlights, wear bright clothing

 2 great PSAs -encouraging pedestrian safety

3rd grade Students from Highview  provide pedestrians with safety tips 

& Edgemont 7th grader encourages pedestrians to wear reflectors, use flashlights when walking at night  

Highview School's librarian and Intervention Lab teacher Mr. Mike McHale, gathered some third-grade students from the Advanced Learning Program (ALP) classroom, and put together the following  PSA regarding safety. Wear reflectors.  Carry flashlights. Try to wear bright (not dark) clothing.  If motorists can't see you walking you could be hit by a car. Every year pedestrians die because motorists can't see them walking in the dark. The Highview students also provide pedestrians with a number of other important safety tips that could help keep pedestrians safe.  Highview School is part of the Greenburgh Central school district.

THANK YOU students for helping our community be safe.  If everyone follows the recommendations in the PSA there would be fewer pedestrian accidents.

Siddanth Karthik, a 7th grader at Edgemont produced the following PSA earlier this year urging pedestrians to be careful when walking in the evening-wear bright clothing, reflectors, carry a flash light.  
Free reflectors can be picked up at the lobby of the Greenburgh Town Hall. The Greenburgh police also give out reflectors to pedestrians. 
We continue to try to involve students and hope they will continue to help us make our town a better and safer place to live.
