LITTLETON – Superintendent Kelly Clenchy and Principal Michelle Kane are pleased to report that students at the Shaker Lane Elementary School recently participated in assemblies to learn more about electricity and how to stay safe.
Nick Lawler, General Manager of the Littleton Electric Light and Water Department, and safety consultant Ray Gouley visited Shaker Lane on Jan. 12.
Students, meeting in groups of Pre-K/K and Grades 1 and 2, received an age-appropriate presentation and were introduced to “Mr. Ouch,” who warns about electrical safety.
“LELWD greatly appreciates our relationship with the Town of Littleton and the Littleton Public Schools,” Lawler said. “Electrical safety training is something that we take very seriously, and it’s great to have an opportunity to start this outreach and hopefully have a positive impact on our community’s children.”
Students learned how to be safe around outlets, cords, electrical appliances, power lines, and other everyday electrical hazards. They also learned about the dangers of water around electrical circuits.
They also received a copy of “Kato’s Electrical Safety Coloring and Activity Book,” which features Kato the Safety Cat leading children through coloring, word games, and puzzles to reinforce electrical safety basics.
“Children are naturally curious. We’re grateful to the Littleton Electric Light and Water Departments for helping our students stay safe, with lessons they can bring home and teach their younger siblings,” Principal Kane said.
