Bragging on kids

Earlier this year, the entire fifth grade class at my daughter's school started a letter campaign to our City council to get some school zone signs posted on a busy street that runs right by the back entrance of our school. Many students of all ages walk along this two lane road that has a speed limit of 35 MPH. Not only is it a main road through town, it's also a state route/highway.

The kids were successful. I noticed today that there are now signs posted for that area being a school zone, with flashing lights and everything.

YAY!!!! to the fifth grade class for doing something GOOD in the community.

  • I didn't think they'd get very far with their request. The political machine being what it is, and them being underage and all.

    I am SO surprised and pleased that City Council listened and did something about the area.

  • Yay for them! I'm sure some of it though was the council not wanting bad press for turning down a bunch of kids.
