The purpose of the safety patrol program at Wendell Creative Arts and Science Elementary School is to enhance the safety of our students within our school.  In addition, it promotes the development of leadership skills and good citizenship qualities.  A safety patrol's job is to model for students the safety rules that have been taught in the classroom and to assist students in safe transitions throughout the school building.  Patrols receive instruction on safety guidelines and procedures during their training and regular patrol meetings.
    Safety patrols are selected at the end of their 4th grade year and actually serve as patrols in 5th grade.  Patrols are selected with input from teachers, administrators, and other school staff.  The selection process consists of an application, interviews, and teacher recommendations.  Safety Patrols are expected to maintain excellent conduct, good academic performance, superior character, commitment and responsibility throughout the year while on and off duty.
    The advisors for Safety Patrol are Ms. Schoonover and Mrs. Davis.
