From the KlaasKids Foundation

Carden Academy of Almaden will host a KlaasKids Print-A-Thon to promote and educate families about child safety and fingerprint and photograph children at no cost. 

Each participating child will receive a comprehensive packet of child safety tools. 

Using state of the art computerized systems that were originally designed for a federal law enforcement agency each child will receive digitized fingerprints, an updated photograph, a DNA Collection Kit developed by the California DNA Laboratory, pro-active child safety tips and a 9-point plan on what to do if your child disappears. 

Parents are encouraged to bring their children to Carden Academy of Almaden between 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2012. 

Nationally recognized child safety expert Marc Klaas, the father of kidnap/murder victim Polly Klaas and Michael Le, the brother of missing/murder nursing student Michelle Le will attend and participate in the Print-A-Thon event. The trial of Michelle Le’s killer is currently underway in Oakland.

  • WHEN: Friday, October 12, 2012 between 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • WHERE: Carden Academy of Almaden, 5200 Dent Ave. in San Jose

Child Safety is one of our community’s most important issues, but it is one we tend to take for granted until a tragedy happens.

The KlaasKids Foundation was created following the 1993 kidnap and murder of 12-year-old Polly Klaas. 

KlaasKids Foundation child safety programs are designed to promote awareness and education for parents and children in an effort to protect children against violence.

Since 1994, Print-A-Thon events have fingerprinted and photographed more than 1,000,000 children at no cost to families and without data basing children’s personal and private information. 

As a service to the community Carden Academy of Almaden are underwriting this program so that there is no charge to families.
