To families of students in grades 1 to 5:
October 5 begins National Fire Prevention Week. For the past four years the Upper Darby Fire Department has conducted a poster contest involving the theme for Fire Prevention Week. This year's theme is "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives, Test Yours Every Month". The contest has been successful and is now a yearly Fire Prevention event. The contestants will be from grades 1 to 5 with each grade being a category. There will be a 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and honorable mention winner from each category. The winners will be introduced and the awards will be presented on October 5 at Aronimink School at the conclusion of the Fire Prevention Week parade.
Students are to draw their poster on 8 1/2 x 11 inch white paper (not poster board). On the back of the poster, clearly print the student's name, name of our school and their grade.
Posters will be turned in to school and the fire department will send a representative to pick them up from us. The deadline for posters is Thursday, September 25.
Entries will be reviewed and judged and we will be notified if our school has any winners along with information about the awards ceremony. (Raindate for the awards ceremony will be October 25).
The Upper Darby Fire Department is very supportive of our school, assisting us with our fire drills. Let's show them we appreciate their efforts by having a great participation in this contest!
