Kids Speak Out

We will publish age and school, but name upon request only!

Here's a letter from a 3rd grade student at Dos Rios Elementary. She asked her parents who had made the changes at school this year because she would like to speak to them. These are her words.

Dear District,

I think you made some bad changes at school for recess time. It is the most important time of the day.
The students need fresh air to be able to be awake for their classes. I've seen more than 1 kid fall asleep in class.
Another reason is you don't have a lot of time in the day to talk with your friends. That is like the only time to talk to people. And what about exercise? Children need exercise. Yes you do exercise in P.E., but we only have P.E. once or twice a week.
And I would appreciate it if we had more recess's.
