Free Car, Anyone?
Fremd’s P.A.V.E. Club (Positive Actions for Vikings Every Day) encourages safe driving among their classmates through its association with AAA’s Operation Click Safe Driver Program. As stated on their website, the mission of Operation Click is to “reduce teen fatalities and injuries from motor vehicle crashes by developing safe driving habits through education and positive reinforcement.”
The Operation Click Safe Driver Contract asks students to commit to operating their motor vehicles in a safe manner. In return for completing an Operation Click Safe Driver Contract students are automatically entered into a drawing to win a brand new car! The winner of this drawing is selected at the annual Operation Click banquet in April.
If your student has not already done so, please encourage him/her to print and complete an Operation Click Safe Driver Contract by using the link below. Completed contracts should be submitted to Social Studies teacher, Mr. Bruce or Fremd’s Police Consultant, Officer Bahn, no later than November 11th.
