Bonnie Garcia Principal Dr. Cordelia Nava accepts radKIDS proclamation from program CEO and Founder Stephen M. Daley.
LAREDO, TEXAS (UISD) - On May 21, 2014, a celebration was held at Bonnie Garcia elementary to recognize the campus’ outstanding success in the radKIDS program.
The radKIDS program is a school wide personal empowerment safety education program that teaches students in grades 1-5 that “no one none has the right to hurt anyone” and that there are safe and effective ways to avoid becoming a victim.
Bonnie Garcia is officially the first elementary school in UISD and Texas to become a zero victimization school.
During the celebration, Principal Dr. Cordelia Nava cheerfully accepted a congratulatory proclamation from radKIDS program CEO/Founder Stephen M. Daley.
Nava said that she and her staff were honored by the recognition and that everyone at her campus would continue to work together to maintain a safe learning environment.
Joining in the celebration were representatives from the Webb County Sheriff’s Department, Sylvia Bruni, Executive Director of the Webb County Children’s Advocacy Center, UISD Superintendent Roberto J. Santos and Webb and Zapata District Attorney Isidro Alaniz, who helped bring the radKIDS project to fruition.
UISD’s Gutierrez Elementary School is slated to implement the radKIDS program during the 2014-2015 school year.
