    #2 Don’t skip class no matter how tempting it may be
    #3 Be sure to know your schools rules.

    1. As a student know the phone number, address, how to get in touch with your parents at work.

    2. Don’t talk to strangers or get in the car with someone you don’t know.

    3. Pay attention to your surroundings when getting on and off the bus, know the landscape of your neighborhood

    My SAVE Chapter talk to Elementary students about school safety tips. Teach them the Do’s and the Don’t.


  • Kaitlyn Wade August 11, 2016 at 12:03 am

    Tip 1. Be wary of you talk and interact with and be careful to converse with others, not everyone acts the same way, keep in mind of word.
    Tip 2. Stay safe in any public environment you enter, not every place or group of people is really “safe”, keep an eye out for signs of danger or drama.
    Tip 3. Keep your viral life safe in your hands as much as your real life, it’s okay to have friends on the internet, but do try to move around in a safe manner, just like in real life how you keep some of your important info safe from others.

    1. Try to make new friends and stay with older good friends, but avoid any possible drama.
    2. If you’ve ever complained about a heavy backpack, it’s not just hurting your mood but also your back. Make sure the straps aren’t too long, pulling the weight more onto your back.
    3. If you’re riding to school with someone or driving yourself, be safe on the roads. No texting and driving and wear your seatbelt.

    My chapter tries to have information readily available for the students, including on the TVs during the school day. Education is key.


  • Rhiannon Potwin August 2, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    1. Stay focused. School is abouy learning and having fun, so don’t get caught up in drama.
    2. Stay organized. Being organized is essential in staying focused.
    3. Pay attention to who.your friends are. Are they people who you are okay beig associated with. If not, then stop being friends!


  • Marjorie lam August 2, 2016 at 7:24 pm

    1. Be aware of your surroundings when getting on and off the school bus. It’s always better to have a buddy to walk with; you’re less vulnerable with more people.
    2. Don’t get caught up in other people’s drama and gossip. You want to have a fun and a enjoyable school year. Who wants enemies at a place you attend 5 days a week for 7 hours??
    3. Be positive and choose your friends wisely! Our friends influence us greatly sooo have friends that make you happy! Treat others the way you want to be treated.
    My chapter will promote positivity, ensure our students are safe and recruit new save members!


  • Mamie Frank March 8, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    1. Make sure you’re safe getting to school. If you ride the bus, follow the rules of the bus. If you drive, make sure that you’re safe and follow all driving laws.
    2. Be aware of your surroundings. It’s a new year with new people, know who’s around you and what they’re up to
    3. Avoid drama and be verbal. When you see drama or conflict, call people out on it.
    My SAVE chapter encourages people to make new friends and to stay safe. we encourage members to reach out to new people and to include new students.


  • Jordan German October 23, 2015 at 1:41 am

    1. Make friends and be a well rounded person
    2. Surround yourself with people that have positive goals in their lives so you can feed off their energy.
    3. Be aware of your surroundings. Don’t let rumors, students, and other things persuade you to do things bad.
    And our chapter will go to different schools in our district and educate students about safety ib=n school. And to encourage them to become safe.


  • Maggie Adams September 28, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    #1 Ask for help! If you ever do not know what to do or where something is, please ask your fellow peers. A lot of them are just as confused as you, and would love to have a buddy to get through the day with.
    #2 Please be aware of the buses, cars, bikes, and students around the school. Many are still getting used to the new traffic patterns, whether it be in the school hallways or on the road, so be aware of your surroundings!
    #3 Branch out and make new friends! Make sure you are safe on social media websites and are hanging out with the right crowd for you!

    My SAVE chapter will be encouraging freshman to join, so they can have a positive and fun influence on their life!


  • Sarah Spradlin August 23, 2015 at 3:30 am

    1. make sure you are hanging with the right crowd suited for you!
    2. be respectful to your teachers/ staff and fellow students
    3. try to make your self involved throughout the school year! I bet there is plenty of activities for you!
    just remember to keep a positive mind throughout the year and help others when they need you!


  • Gabrielle Allen-Destroismaisons August 11, 2015 at 2:12 am

    1. Buddy Up! One great way to stay safe this upcoming school year is to “buddy up” when walking home from school, going to events, or walking to the bus stop. Having someone know where you are at all times is very important!
    2. Be aware of your surroundings! Some of us will be navigating new environments this school year. Whether you are attending a new school, getting a new job, or joining a new club, make sure that you are aware of what is going on around you so that you can avoid any negative activity.
    3. Be verbal. If you see something that makes you uncomfortable in your school, report it. If you need help, ask for it. If you see someone who needs help, offer it.
    My SAVE chapter will promote back-to-school safety by opening up the discussion of ways to stay safe to students on campus. We also plan on using social media as a possible forum to share safety tips since we are able to reach a wide audience that way and really expand the conversation.


  • Kaleigh Wright August 5, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    1. Make sure you are kind to others, they will be kind to you back. This helps prevent any problems.
    2. Always be safe on the road going to and from school, if you ride the bus make sure not to distract the bus driver so that you are safe.
    3. Be smart on social media, don’t give out your passwords, and only be friends with those who you can trust.
    My chapter will be educating others on safe driving and how to make sure you are being smart on social media.


  • Larissa Wilson August 5, 2015 at 4:04 am

    My tips to you are to try and make new friends, they really come in handy throughout the year!
    Stick with the right crowd, you don’t want to be associated with the “mean girls/boys”. They will cause nothing but trouble.
    Lastly treat others like you want to be treated! Don’t go around being rude to people and expect them to be nice to you!
    My SAVE chapter likes to hang posters all around the school about making the year a good year and how to prevent trouble/violence throughout the new year!


  • Jenny Suwanmanee August 4, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Tip #1: If you walk to school, bike to school or take the bus, make sure you are looking both ways and crossing the streets safely!

    Tip #2: Meeting new people can be fun but make sure that you don’t become friends with someone whose a bad influence on you.

    Tip #3: Make sure to always have an ID Card with you at all times and a card with emergency contacts incase of an emergency.

    My SAVE chapter hangs posters around the school to remind people bout Back-to-School Safety and give talks at the Fall pep rally.


  • Rose Le August 4, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    1. (Backpack safety) make sure your backpack doesn’t weigh too much and encourage using both straps
    2.(transportation safety) always let someone know where you are by sending text messages/calling, and if you don’t have a phone make sure there’s someone waiting on you at your desination.Avoid being alone by bringing a friend along in your car, ride your bikes together, or have someone at the bus stop with you.
    3.(drama) Avoid drama in the classroom and around school by encouraging order and discipline and always staying positive and amiable.(:
    My SAVE chapter will be recruiting more members to promote safety.


  • Haley Abernathy August 4, 2015 at 1:51 pm

    Tip # 1: Do not share passwords to social media with anyone.
    Tip # 2: Create a safety tip sheet to give out to students at orientation.
    Tip# 3: If you drive to school make sure you are conscious of school buses.
    My club usually gives out information on back to school safety at orientation each year.
