Safety Patrol
One of the cool opportunities that you get in fifth grade is to be a crossing guard. Being a crossing guard is fun but it has a lot of responsibilities and rules; it’s not that hard but you have to be on your toes.

The crossing guard team is responsible for helping get kids to and from school safely. But there are a couple ways YOU can help. Don’t text and drive. Don’t go fast around schools. Cross only in designated crosswalks. We all have to work as a team to do our jobs well.

The benefit of doing all this hard work is helping people but getting to class later and leaving early is a nice perk. And we get a party at the end of the year, SWEET!

Be safe!
