FES Students Learn Safety Tips from Community

SEEING IS BELIEVING – Farmington Elementary School students watch carefully as Kentucky State Police Trooper Jay Thomas demonstrates the effects of a rollover collision on an unrestrained driver. Fourth, fifth, and sixth graders at the southeastern Graves County school recently participated in a special safety day sponsored by Crop Production Services. The event involved several community organizations, including the KSP and West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications Cooperative. Students saw real-life examples of how being prepared for dangerous situations can save lives. Topics included internet safety, the dangers of electricity, and the importance of wearing a seatbelt, helmet, or life jacket. Another focus was the importance of nutrition and daily physical exercise. “We’re really grateful to Crop Production Services for sponsoring this event and to all the organizations that participated,” said Farmington interim principal Amy Archer. “When groups like these come into our school, students see how what they’re learning connects to the real world and they see that adults in the community care enough to donate their time and talent to help them learn.”
