Anderson Elementary School
Presents…
A Special Parent Introduction to
The Joyful Child Foundation’s BRAVE Program

The Westminster School District’s Board of Trustees has approved implementation of the Be Brave – Be Safe Empowerment Program (BRAVE), created by The Joyful Child Foundation, in every elementary school. The goal of the BRAVE Program is to develop each student’s ability to reduce the risk of victimization by providing knowledge and skills about safety.

The BRAVE Program offers an opportunity to establish consistent language about child safety among educators, parents, and students, and provides a context for determining appropriate responses across the spectrum of high-risk behaviors.

Please attend this free parent presentation from The Joyful Child Foundation to learn important information about the BRAVE Program and strategies to help keep children safe.  Join us for an inspiring and empowering discussion about how we can create a safer community for all of our children.

Volunteers – To volunteer at Schroeder (help in classrooms, attend class parties, go on field trips) all volunteers need to:

  • Attend a volunteer orientation (offered Sept.-Oct.)
  • Sign the green Volunteer Agreement Form
  • Have a current TB test on file

If you plan to volunteer anytime during the year, please make sure you have dropped by the office and completed the items listed above (if you haven’t already).

Student Pick-Up – All students need to be picked up on campus.  Students may not go to the park and wait to be picked up.  The park is not a safe place for students to wait, even with friends.  We have had some problems in the past and need to ensure that all students are safe.  4th-6th grade students can wait by E1 and have parents pick them up by going through the parking lot.
