Crossing Guard Appreciation Day is Friday, May 18th

Crossing Guards help to shepherd us safely across the street. They keep children (and adults) safe from traffic throughout the year Рno matter the conditions: rain, heat, wind. Our crossing guards are an important part of the Safe Routes to School Program.

Crossing Guard Appreciation Day in Decatur is Friday, May 18th. Let’s all show our guards some love!

Here are a few ideas for showing your appreciation:
Make a card thanking them
Write a thank you note
Have your child draw a picture of a crossing guard in action
Bring him or her flowers from your garden
Give a gift card to a local business
