CHFD/CHPS Fire Safety Survey for Grades 1, 3, 5, and 6
CHFD/CHPS Fire Safety Survey for Grades 1, 3, 5, and 6

The Cherry Hill Fire Department has been a partner with the Cherry Hill School District providing fire safety education for many years. In 2014 we presented a new program entitled "Safety Smart". Safety Smart is a school-based curriculum that links teachers with community safety experts and parents. Safety Smart is being taught in grades 1, 3, 5 and 6 as part of the Physical/Health Education Program.

The goal of the Safety Smart Program is not only to teach students valuable safety skills, but also to have the students put these skills to use outside of the school environment. A valuable tool to help us evaluate the effectiveness of the program is the parent survey. We ask parents/guardians to please take a few minutes to complete an online Parent Survey so we can determine how, if at all, the instruction is being put to use.

J.F. Cooper Introduces Waste-Less Wednesdays!
J.F. Cooper Introduces Waste-Less Wednesdays!

Dear Parents/Guardians, Our Green Team is excited to introduce Waste-Less Wednesdays! We are kindly urging you to send your child(ren) to school with reusable containers that produce ZERO waste. A great way to begin this journey would be to make the promise to help your environment by using reusable water bottles in school. Lunch and snack items that fit nicely into reusable containers:

  • Sliced fruit
  • Cut up Vegetables
  • Sandwiches
  • Soup
  • Salad
  • All of your favorite snacks can fit nicely into a reusable container

Truly, the options are endless! So instead of going to the store and buying a case of water bottles and little sandwich baggies, make a one time purchase and start reusing! Not only will your participation in our Waste-Less Wednesdays program benefit our school, our local community, and beautiful planet, but it will also save you money in the long run! Please help us by sending in your child(ren) to school with as little waste as possible!

Thank You,

The Green Team and our Planet
