Peter’s Story



Peter Atienza

Oriole Parkway Junior Public School
Toronto, Ontario

Nominated by the parents of students at Oriole Parkway Junior Public School, Peter Atienza proves himself to be an excellent crossing guard and a great role model for children. Peter guards a busy intersection in mid-town Toronto where he influences kids to have a positive attitude. 

Safety is of the highest priority for Peter, he seems to protect both sides of the street and takes his job very seriously. Last winter icy conditions caused a car to skid into the side of the road, Peter pushed several children and their caregivers into the snow bank to avoid the car. He managed to keep the kids calm and smiling, and also attended to the driver of the car. 

Peter is valued and cherished in this community.
