Third Graders at Canyon just completed RadKids. In this class children gain valuable lifesaving skills as they learn to recognize, avoid, resist and escape from danger.  In radKIDS, children learn from a comprehensive curriculum that addresses school safety, bullying, home safety, fire safety, bike safety, dog safety, out and about safety, strangers, how and when to call 911, good/bad/uncomfortable touch to name a few. After each subject is taught we practice safety drills so they get a chance to practice what they are learning. Additionally children learn physical resistance skills to help them stop violence and escape to safety should they encounter physical harm or danger.  Essentially, children in this program are physically trained how to be safe, not just told how.
