Suffolk County Department of Health educator Robin Spencer recently offered pedestrian safety lessons to students in grades K-2 at Wing. The visit was a result of a New York State Highway Safety grant awarded to Wing by the department.

Spencer spoke with students in each Wing classroom, touching on topics such as crossing at the corner, wearing light colors at night and what to do when there is no sidewalk.

“These lessons gave the students an opportunity to have direct instruction about pedestrian safety and the potential hazards near roads,” said first-grade teacher Lisa Dieumegard. “We encourage the children to play outside, so we need them to be conscious of their surroundings and how to navigate the area around them. The lessons increased their awareness of the world around them.”
