Accent on Youth Safety Assembly
Each year, the Chagrin Falls Intermediate School hosts a Safety Assembly for their students addressing safe walking and cycling in the downtown area of Chagrin Falls. CFIS is the first school our children encounter that is in a walkable area. It is also a time when children starts to act more independently. As they make their first trips in to town after school or from home to school in the morning, we want to remind them to do so safely. We’ve been lucky to have the support of a local teen theater troupe. Each year, under the direction of Julia Kolbiab, the troupe puts together an original skit on a subject that affects student walkers. This year, we not only covered safety but also introduced the idea that kids need to be polite sidewalk citizens.
