Children across Kentucky are challenged to be a star this week, but not in the way that you would think.

It is Kentucky Safe Schools Week, and this year’s theme is “Be a safety star.”

The Kentucky Center for School Safety has announced that this year’s theme “Be a safety star” focuses on the multifaceted brilliance of what it means to be a safety star in and out of school.

They encourage all students to take the safety pledge.

S: Sharing, caring, and spreading kindness everywhere you go.

T: Treating everyone with the respect we all deserve.

A: Abiding by all school safety rules.

R: Rising up and shining, helping others who need support.

There are materials and resources to help promote safety at good character. If you would like to access them, go to the Kentucky Center for School Safety website.
