Janet Henderson's first-grade class joins John Wray, coordinator of Kid Safe, on Saturday as he presents a $2,000 check from Bartlett Regional Hospital to Mendenhall River Community School. Mendenhall River won the cash award for achieving the highest per capita participation at the 2007 Kid Safe event of all the local public elementary schools in the Juneau Borough. Principal Patty Newman reported that Henderson's class had an imaginative way to remind students about the Feb. 17th event - each student wore a band-aid with the words "Kid Safe" printed on it.
