    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be included in the KidSafe program. I highly recommend this program to other schools. We hope that we will be given the same opportunity for our Kindergarten and 2nd grade students to be a part of this wonderful program during the 2016-2017 school year.

    I am a parent of two Pine Crest children and I attended your program on Monday night. I just wanted to thank you so very much for the very informative seminar. As hard as it was to hear all of those things, it was very needed. We were thrilled that you were able to come and share that very important information with us and our children. So again…thank you.

    It was a normal Saturday and I was at the rink with my 7 and 8 year old. My son asked me if he could use the Men’s Restroom by himself. Without hesitation, my daughter said, Absolutely not! I was in KidSafe today and you cannot go to the restroom alone. It is very important that Mommy is with you.. with us. I was so proud of my little girl! Many thanks to you all, keep up the great work!
