The morning of Tuesday, April 9th, 11th and 12th grade students will attend a safety-orientated conference called S.T.A.T. (Safe Today and Tomorrow) while underclassmen are taking the A.C.T. Aspire test. There are a variety of resources and activities for all students that can help prepare you for College and Career Readiness and beyond! ALL Upperclassmen can benefit from this conference. Students going off to college can benefit from the college safety presentations or the American Association of University Women’s booth, whereas individuals in the trades can benefit from the financial safety information and the Blackhawk Community Credit Union financial game. This conference will give Craig graduates the resources they need to take on independence for the first time, as well as stay healthy and happy during this transition period. That’s why if you there’s anything else regarding safety you want to know about, we will provide you with information within a week of the conference date. And the best part: You will have the chance to WIN a Fitbit and other prizes.


We want YOUR feedback: Anything that you’re interested in regarding safety that isn’t included? Gabby Petruzzello at [email protected] with questions or suggestions. We will find you the resources even if we can’t include it on April 9th.
