I spent a lot of time in school with one eye on the clock waiting for the bell to ring – maybe some of you can relate. I actually knew where the second hand would be on each clock – no, they weren’t digital – when the bell would ring. I was half way to the door by the time it stopped.
In case you haven’t noticed, school season is once again upon us. There’s more traffic in the mornings and more kids walking around the neighborhoods.
You may be saying, “That’s great, but what does school have to do with utilities?” Well, let me tell you. We’ve got a great education program for teachers, parents, students, organizations and the community in general to learn about utilities safety and the importance of conservation.
- Facility tours
- Educational and entertaining programs
- Classroom presentations
- Teaching kits
- Interactive tools online
You’ll find more educational information under the Community tab on our website. Check it out and see if there’s something there for you and/or your kids to help them understand what happens when they flip the light switch or turn the water faucet.
Not a teacher, but still interested? Not a problem. Most of these tools and offerings are available for kids of all ages!
As a community-owned utility, we’re proud to support activities to help everyone learn more about being safe around utilities and how to conserve.
Don’t worry, there’s no quadratic formula and you don’t need to show your work. Heck, we don’t even spring pop quizzes on you or hand out grades. It’s all about providing a fun way to learn more about your four-service utility.
Whoa…gotta go, the bell’s about to ring!
