KSL-TV Invites Schools to Participate in Safe UT Awareness Day

In an attempt to educate all students, parents and other members of the community about the SafeUT app, KSL-TV is asking everyone to participate in something they are calling Stand Up for a Safe Utah. It is a day of news coverage devoted to getting people familiar with the SafeUT app and highlighting what it can do in the way of crisis intervention. They are also trying to get a record number of people, especially students, to download the app. KSL says this is in light of recent events in Florida and other tragedies at schools around the country.

KSL will be awarding prizes to schools which demonstrate the highest level of participation in Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Here is what they are asking students to do:

  • Encourage your friends to download the app
  • Use hashtag #SafeUt on social media posts
  • Individuals who share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded will receive a chance to win a $50.00 Visa gift card
  • The school which is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL
  • The contest begins Thursday, Feb. 22 and ends at 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23
  • The winner will be announced on KSL news at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23

Kindness on Display at Herriman Elementary ‘Love Assembly’

Teacher singing and playing ukuleleLove was in the air at Herriman Elementary School at their recent ‘Love Assembly’ to spotlight kindness at the school.

Every month throughout the school year, Herriman Elementary holds an assembly to remind students about the ‘Kindness Crusade’ that was implemented at the school in August. The crusade intends to teach kids about modeling kindness, eliminating bullying, promoting school attendance, creating inclusiveness and bringing joy and laughter to the halls of Herriman Elementary.

This month’s assembly reinforced love and kindness by showing students another side to their hard-working teachers. Teachers displayed some of their talents, such as singing, acting, playing musical instruments and telling jokes, among many other talents.

At the end of the assembly, several students representing all grades were recognized for modeling kindness throughout the school and helping Herriman Elementary to be an inclusive, wonderful place to go to school.
