Stone Mill Elementary School Safety Patrols Honored for Heroism and Leadership

Two fifth grade students serving as safety patrols at Stone Mill Elementary School in North Potomac have been recognized by AAA Mid-Atlantic for their efforts to help a classmate who fell from a second story banister during dismissal earlier this year.

The students, Matina Naum and Alex Rossoshek, were at their safety patrol posts by a stairwell in the school. During dismissal, a fellow student fell from a banister to the cement floor two stories below. The girls remained calm, cleared the stairwell, navigated students away and got immediate adult help. Despite their emotions and their friendship with the boy, they were able to answer many questions from emergency personnel.

They “were truly impressive and beautifully demonstrated the AAA Safety Patrol promise to provide school-aged children an extra sense of safety and security when going to and from school,” said Dr. Kimberly Williams Cascio, Stone Mill principal. “I truly appreciate the opportunity to recognize these girls for their heroism, leadership and professionalism.”
