RadKids is a Personal Empowerment Safety Education and Violence Prevention Program for Children. This program empowers kids with realistic options in their own personal safety against abduction, sexual assault, bullying and abuse. For more detailed information on the program, please visit their website at www.radkids.org
At Saratoga Shores Elementary we have traditionally held this program for all of our 3rd grade classes. PTA helps organize and support the program while teachers and parent volunteers train the students during the school day.
We did not run the program last year for various reasons one of which was that we needed another trained parent instructor.
So for the new school year 2010-2011 we're recommitting PTA and the school to the radKIDS program. Our goal for the new school year is to have all of the 3rd and 4th grade students go through the program throughout the year.
In order to carry out this goal we need one parent volunteer (male or female) who would be willing to attend the next instructor training program held in Provo (Saratoga Shores Elem. will cover the cost of the program). This parent instructor would be used throughout the year to help train our students in the radKIDS program. Therefore they would be needed at various times during the school year and during the school day.
What a cool way to give back to the community and help all our students stay safe!
If you're interested in helping us run the radKIDS program and attending the instructor training session, please contact Heather ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

Check out Screamin Coupons & their amazing daily deals.
I’m on Screamin Coupons daily e-mail, and I just got a coupon to Wallaby’s restaurant in Lindon that will get me $15 of food for $7.00 and I got 4 coupons. I’m going to use it for a Father’s Day Gift. The coupons are good until November. It’s a 53% savings. And 5%-10% of the money will go towards Saratoga Shores (because that’s my local benefit that I chose).
Of course I want everyone to sign up and select Saratoga Shores! The school that signs up the most people will get a $500 bonus! So pass this on!
The other day they had a local spa over in Orem that had a 60% off coupon on their spa services and yesterday it was 50% off handmade Kettle Corn.
The best thing about it is that it’s totally FREE. All you do is sign up and which county you want daily deals from and choose which school you want to benefit! And you choose any or none of the deals that come your way. It will send you the deals from Utah County and if that’s your preference! Happy Day! --Heather Kuntz
