Ruby Tuesday - The Crossing Guard

The young 5th grader selected to be one of the school crossing guards has a lot of responsibility.  His red shirt and sash signals to everyone that he owns this spot and can stop cars while he safely escorts those  who are crossing at his spot.    The red shirt is his symbol of authority.

For other shades of red from all over check out Ruby Tuesday.

What a nice way for the kids to learn "responsibility." That's something kids don't learn from the books.

My Ruby Tuesday post is up HERE. Happy Tuesday to you!

I had to laugh. At SuperPizzaBoy's first school the fifth grade crossing guard was completely befuddled by SPB's lack of response to the guard's instructions. We had to tell the guard that SPB doesn't respond to general orders to everybody. You have to call his name and then tell him.

We had to tell SPB to listen to the crossing guard.

I remember being a crossing guard at Eisenhower elementary school. Man, we thought we had arrived. Have a wonderful Ruby Tuesday.

You can tell he's important because of the way he's standing!
Nice to see children given responsibility.

Smart way to teach kids responsibility! Do they take turn to do that?
