      In Guidance we have been discussing staying safe in public.  Part of what we visit about is called "Scoops".  This curriculum teaches students how to be safe when they are away from home.  The Scoops curriculum helps children understand the importance of being aware of their surroundings, and people they come in contact with.  It's focus is knowing that most individuals are nice, but some are not.  As part of the lesson we read together a book entitled "Scoop" written by Julia Cook.  We discuss the five safety rules that give students strategies and knowledge about staying safe.  Our first and second grade students are given a worksheet of the Scoop rules to take home with them so they can visit with their parents or guardian about what Scoop is.
