Region 8 students are informed on safety

JONESBORO,AR (KAIT)- Students are learning more than reading and math.  In many schools across Region 8, SAFETY isbecoming a big lesson.

TheMorgan Nick Foundation was at the Valley View School District Wednesday. Grade by grade students filed into the gymto hear from the foundation's prevention education coordinator.

Kelly Hays catered her talk to the youngerstudents, highlighting issues like stranger danger and Internet safety.

Principal Pam Clark says it's importantthat the students get this information at such a young age.

"They surprise you with what they remember, especially with apresentation like this. She does a great job. She brings a cartoon and musicinto it, and that makes them pay attention," said Clark.

TheMorgan Nick Foundation partners with the state attorney general's office toprovide this information to schools across the state.

Valley View administrators hope to bringback the foundation so that even more students can learn to better protectthemselves.
