The Enterprise High School Family Consumer Studies class and FCCLA presented Traffic Safety Week recently.

The groups worked with first- through third-grade classes at the Enterprise Elementary School to help teach students about pedestrian safety through games and activities.

The elementary student that participated created traffic awareness posters that included the slogan "Be Upbeat, Don't Play in the Street".

The posters were judged by FCCLA members. Winners included Callyn Stewart first grade, Claire Carper second grade and Dustin Denton third grade. Each winner received a first place certificate and a ten dollar gift certificate from Dollar Mart.

There was also a competition between the classes to see which individual students could find the most yield, stop and cross walk signs as they traveled with their parents over the week. Mrs. Keefer's class was the winner and will receive a root beer float party for their efforts.
