A NOTE FROM OUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR
In the next few weeks, I will begin covering safety and stranger danger with my students. We need to help
children learn how to protect themselves from people who might cause them danger. I am providing you with
some ways you can help children be safe and avoid dangerous situations. I encourage you to discuss these with
1. Define for your child who is a “stranger”. Strangers are people you don’t know well. Even if they may
seem nice, some of them may try to trick you and harm you. Rehearse possible “stranger” situations
with your child so he or she will know how to say “No”, should the real situation ever occur. Tell your
children to never talk to strangers, never let a stranger get too close, never take candy from a
stranger, a present, a ride or anything else. Never tell a stranger your name or address. Never go with
a stranger to find a lost puppy. Never go into deserted places alone, always try to walk with a friend or
grown-up. Lastly, if a stranger grabs you, yell as loud as you can for help.
2. Never leave small children home alone or unattended in a car or in public. But, if your child is old
enough to be left alone, tell him/her to never open the door to anyone knocking or ringing the doorbell
and never tell anyone calling on the phone that you are home alone.
3. Be sure your child knows his or her name, address, city, state and phone number (including area code).
Show him or her how to dial 911 or provide the number for emergencies in your area.
4. If your child is old enough to visit friends on his or her own, be sure that you tell him or her to let you
know WHERE they are going, WHO they are playing with and WHEN they will return.
5. Stay involved in with your child’s life. The more actively you participate in what your child does, the
better chance he or she will have of avoiding strangers, as well as drugs or other dangerous situations.
As always, if I can be of any help to you or your child, please feel free to contact me at 279-6307 or by
email at email@example.com.
WHY DO I NEED SLEEP???
Every creature needs to rest, even animals. Just like eating, sleep is necessary
for survival. Sleep gives your body a rest and allows it to prepare for the next
day. It's like giving your body a mini-vacation. Sleep also gives your brain a
chance to sort things out. Sleep may be the time when the brain sorts and stores information,
replaces chemicals, and solves problems. How much sleep do I need? Most children between
the ages of 5 and 12 years old need 10 to 11 hours of sleep. Some might need more and some
need less. It depends on the child. Skipping one night's sleep makes a person cranky and
clumsy. After missing two nights of sleep, a person will have problems thinking and doing things;
his or her brain and body can't do their normal tasks nearly as well. Eventually, it
becomes impossible for the brain to give directions to the rest of the body without
sleep. The brain needs to spend time in bed and catch its ZZZs!
