Preschool students love guest speakers at school. One of the best guest speakers to visit pre-k students is a police officer. These pre-k students had a special visit from a DARE officer. He usually speaks to 5th graders in the Drug Awareness Resistance Education (DARE) program.
He made a special visit to preschool to talk about Stranger Danger. He talked about what to do (or not to do) when a stranger approaches them. He talked about gun safety and to never touch or play with a gun if they see one at home or a friend’s house. They learned a simple song to remember if a stranger approaches or they see something dangerous: Run and Tell.
A big highlight of the officer’s visit was seeing his truck. He was a police officer the students usually see around town in a normal police vehicle. The DARE officer had a truck loaded with big speakers and a big stereo system all acquired from drug dealers (bad guys or strangers).
He opened the speakers hatch and cranked up the stereo system and led the students in a line dance.
