Joaquin Elementary Enjoys Fun in the Sun During Summer Safety Program

May 18, 2022 - Joaquin Elementary hosted the Summer Safety Program on Tuesday, May 17th. The program included 15 different rotations ranging from Water Safety, to Wildlife of East Texas and even how to contact 911. Each rotation lasted 20 minutes and students were given real life scenarios and safety tips to ensure they enjoy a safe summer. All students received a goodie bag that included some fun items as well as additional safety tips and gifts from our presenters.
