Echo Park participates in AAA School Safety Patrol Program. This program has operated across the country since 1916. Fifth grade students apply to become patrol members. Students work to cross walkers with flags, assist kindergarten dismissal, and support bus drivers with monitoring activity in transit. Students who participate throughout the whole year are invited to a celebration day at MOA with other patrols around the state in May. This is a leadership position that students look forward to when they reach fifth grade.
