I was waiting to give Willy a ride home from school and watched this young man come out and take up his position. He is one of a number of Safety Monitors who help keep order in the halls and assist the younger children cross the street. He walked out smartly, dumped his knapsack on the grass, adjusted his yellow sash, and turned around to do his duty. It is an honor to be given the responsibility of a safety monitor and whoever he is, I was proud of him.
