The Student Council Might Kill Me

    The Scribe decided to run for student council.  Too bad her ex-best friend/worst enemy is running too!
    If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's that post: When you least expect it . . .


    Anyway, The Scribe wrote an essay and turned it in last Friday.

Student Council Essay

     I love my Elementary school, and I want to make it an even happier place. I want our school to be like a family where kids can share, learn and grow.

     This week I had a very hard week. I wasn't getting along with someone I used to be best friends with. We bullied each other. Things got worse and worse.

     Then, my teacher stepped in and asked for me to talk to her. She taught me how a good attitude can solve most problems. She showed me that with a bright and open mind, I can change my school and the world into a better place.

     With this as my goal, if I become a member of the student council, I promise to work hard to make others happy. I promise to help keep our school as an open and bright environment where kids can learn and grow together.

    They can only have three council members in the 4th grade, and a bunch of other kids are running too.  It will be really interesting to see if The Scribe wins, if her ex-friend wins, if they both get it, or both lose.
    I'm on pins and needles over here.
    We'll find out the results tonight!
