To commemorate June as Safety Month, PSEG Long Island is congratulating more than 1,700 students in the first through fourth grades for becoming badge-wearing “safety sleuths.”
Earlier this year, the students participated in the aptly titled Safety Sleuth electric safety program sponsored by PSEG Long Island. The curriculum provided dozens of teachers in 21 schools across Long Island and the Rockaways with an opportunity to engage in safety education in their classes and ultimately have their students create informational posters on related topics.
Teachers were encouraged to submit their favorite posters and, of the 91 posters submitted, about two dozen are being featured in a virtual gallery available online. The artwork will also be on display at the Long Island Children’s Museum in Garden City during June and July.
“It is important to teach children electrical safety from a young age, and this curriculum was specifically developed to educate elementary school students with simple lessons in a non-frightening way,” Suzanne Brienza, PSEG Long Island’s director of Customer Experience and Utility Marketing, said in a company statement. “We are very pleased with the positive feedback from students and teachers about this new Safety Sleuth program, and we’re happy to officially dub the participating students ‘safety sleuths.’”
