AMITY TALKS We had dueling letters last week on Amity Talks. ANTHONY CIZMARIK (Worrell) wrote: "Can we please, please get rid of Safety Patrol. They write up other kids but let their friends go."
WILL HARDING (Lamothe) wanted Safety Patrol to do more. He wrote: "We should have Traffic Patrol. We could station 8 selected 4th graders - I will be the supervisor - in the intersections to direct traffic so the smaller kids don't get run over." He added maps on where the Traffic Patrol would be stationed.
It was a good debate and thank you for the letters. Safety Patrol has done a great job in stopping the running, pushing, and sliding on stair railings. Most students have learned from their first warning but some have had numerous violations and appropriate consequences. We will be keeping Safety Patrol and may add Will's idea to their assignments next year. ... See MoreSee Less

FRED LACEY (German) wrote: "Please make sure all kids at school are nice to each other. Kids should learn to play football and soccer at recess without arguing."
Good letters, guys, and thanks for reading them on Amity Talks. I don't think we will be doing the movie day Dayton but I will check on the honey dew and Five Nights - honestly, I have no clue what that is!
Fred - great message about getting along and not arguing while you should be having fun at recess! ... See MoreSee Less
