Garner Magnet High School
The Garner Magnet High School SAVE Chapter started off the school year by conducting club awareness activities and incorporating a teen safe driving message on their homecoming float.
America’s Safe Schools Week (October 21-25): The week was promoted the week with posters and banner signing and antibullying activities that focused on cyber bullying and child abuse prevention. SAVE members also collected and delivered goodie bags to children at the InterAct Battered Women’s Shelter.
In November, to promote teen safe driving, anti-texting activities were held in conjunction with the Garner Police Department. Freshmen and Sophomores participated by driving a golf cart through a cone course while attempting to retrieve and send texts. There was also an anti-texting pledge signing during lunch periods and posting of anti-texting posters throughout school. Food and supplies were collected for a family adopted at Christmas within our school community.
National Youth Violence Prevention Week (April 7-11) The SAVE Chapter encouraged students to silence the violence and distributed materials on lunch tables during the week.
National Youth Traffic Safety Month: The chapter created safe and sober prom posters and encouraged students to think and discuss choices and consequences. The Chapter conducted a mock car crash for juniors and seniors during prom week.
A Mock Crash event took place in May with the assistance of the Garner Police & Fire Departments and EMS. The SAVE Advisor at Garner Magnet High School is Vickie Szarek.
