Student safety is a top priority at Michael A. Maroun Elementary School.
Several fourth grade students were recently recognized by school counselor Nora Germain for their participation in the AAA School Safety Patrol throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
For their efforts, Germain rewarded the patrol members with celebratory pizza and snacks.
All 16 members received a certificate of recognition and a pin.
Germain thanked students for their commitment to keeping fellow elementary students safe in the school hallways and the bus area.
Student Cody Hager came up with the idea to expand safety patrol services into the afternoon after he witnessed several students running to their buses earlier in the school year.
Wearing their fluorescent yellow safety patrol belts, students wrote tickets to classmates who exhibited unsafe behaviors and German helped address each issue as it arose.
Students will continue with their safety patrol duties until the first week of June.
