National PTA Safety Tool Kit
New Take Your Family to School Week Online Toolkit Now Available:
National PTA is pleased to release the first themed set of resources designed to support PTA leaders in planning, marketing and executing their Take Your Family to School Week events. To make this easy to accomplish, National PTA and Safe Kids Worldwide have created a digital toolkit, available at www.pta.org/safetytoolkit, containing the following turnkey resources:
• A comprehensive, step-by-step program leader’s planning guide;
• Six activity lesson plans (children in K-5 and their families) addressing poisoning, playground, fire and bike safety;
• A take-home safety tip sheet
National PTA has also created editable template tools for local PTAs to use to promote their events to families, students and their community.
• Family recruitment templates;
• Community and media outreach templates; and
• A customizable poster for marketing the week’s events to families and students.
Within approximately one week, these resources will also be available in Spanish. To provide additional support, next week National PTA is also offering two interactive, online training sessions to local PTAS leaders to help jumpstart planning, provide advice, and answer questions about Take Your Family to School Week.
