School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day May 29

May 28, 2009 – Friday, May 29 has been proclaimed School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day – a day to recognize the work crossing guards do each day to keep our school children safe when crossing busy streets. This year’s Appreciation Day coincides with Safe Kid’s Week which runs from May 25 – 31. 

Adult crossing guards have been insuring safe crossing for children walking to and from school in our City since 1947. This year’s annual event will mark the fifth celebration of Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. The proclamation outlines the important work crossing guards do every day, crossing children safely in all sorts of weather. Thunder Bay’s Crossing Guards have maintained an outstanding safety record.  

When you see a Crossing Guard on Friday May 29, please wave to acknowledge them or simply say ‘Thank You’ for the fine work they do.
