haha! Too bad about the cafeteria thing - - - I would vote for anyone who could bring in good food!!
hmmm...someone must have pulled those two things before!
hahahaha too funny!
To bad. I'm sure those are the topics 5TH graders think are most important!
Well crap.PSI'll vote for the prolife one too. :)
I remember the kids running for student council when I was young -- they ALL made these crazy promises! In the end, the popular kid would win, and the promises were never realized. It's good that they are given guidelines now. ;)
Shoot! There went 2/3 of every kid's speech! xo Diana
I can't believe that there would be a student council for grade fives much less use terms like "set policy".
Maybe they could petition for softer toilet paper.
Oh, and why not? :) I taught for years and know that the poor sweethearts were never enabled or encouraged to look for and parade the things that were possible to change within the school. I wish someone would put the lid on the promises we are made by our candidates . . .
Whatever turns their crank, I guess but they might have received some good ideas...
Lol!! 10 year olds striving for leadership, sweet. <><
Hahaha... I love teaching but thing two things are just plain funny! hahahaxoxoepitomeoffeminineallure.blogpot.co
lol- I couldn't do it either! I can see why they needed to post this information!~Jess
That's probably because said food is only fit for said pets to eat :).
haha politicians are the same everywhere...lol...i remember those running for office in our school made some pretty outlandish promises....
Funny! Thanks for the smile.julie @ Naptime Reviewwww.thenaptimereview.com
I am thinking every school should do that!! :)
Well that takes all of the fun out of it!This message was approved by a follower of this blog.Love Di ♥
Wait, someone running for office has to tell the truth? Unheard of.
Very pretty and classy, love the look :)I follow you now ! Wanna be your friend!Follow me back on facebook ,twitter,and GFC and add me as a friend in GFClove you dear :)Marcchanelette.blogspot.comMarcchanel'ette
That would have changed every speech I ever heard from wannabe student council reps at primary school!
LOL.....wonder why the need of that notice
democracy at work. LOL :)
Maybe they can do something about global climate change.
Awe mom - they just need a little reminder! sandie
Student council in 5th grade? I must be really behind the times.
Student council members in the fifth grade in charge of policy, yes I can see this happening :)I love kids and the teachers job is one I could not handle either.
Wow I am surprise to see a student council for the 5th grade. I wouldn't want to be a teacher either.
That's BS! What kind of platform do you run on then? Back in my day, all those running promised all-day recess and cupcakes for lunch. It was a contest of imagination! Darn bureaucrats ruin everything.
Annmarie, Makes sense to me...a title without any authority! Kind of like being the 'head of the household' when I retired. No decision making authority in this new role. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
That's politics and bureaucracy for ya, they've always gotta take the fun out of life.
They take the fun out of everything! lolI remember my son ran for Treasurer in 5th grade and he did win. :)Happy November!
I think if I was one of those 5th graders that statement would put me right off running for council...after all what else is there in life??? lol
Thanks for the laugh! I can just see those 5th graders minds churning on "What can I offer now?"
hahaha! those two are sure way to get votes from the 5th graders! Spanish Pinay
future leaders unite ! :)
Yes, as someone else pointed out...someone before them made promises that could not be kept. I think that is a great thing to teach children. Don't make promises that you can't keep. If only we could teach adults the same lesson.
Hahaha!!!! That's awesome.I think those rules should apply to those running for president of the U.S. as well. Do not make promises you can't keep! ;)
damn, they sure know how to spoil the fun...
Well that just sucks the fun right out of it, right?
Oh how I remember those all candy vending machine promises back in middle school. My first lesson on political liars lol.
Do you watch Parenthood? The autistic teen on the show ran for student council. All we wanted was for the school to put the fending machine back in the cafeteria. He won!
Can't blame a kid for trying.
just as long as they also don't have the authority to make the classroom pets the lunch in the school cafeteria. :)
After working at an elementary school for two years now, I can attest to the fact that these agenda items ALWAYS make it into someone's speech! Too funny.
Haha that´s really funny! Lovely post:)have a nice weekend,kisses chris
Speech spoilers :)
Now I get it. :) B
Well that's too bad! Thanks for sharing with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party Annmarie!!Have a great weekend :)Paulalifeasweknowitbypaula.blogspot.com
Student Councillors should have more sway, but when I was at school, meals were delicious. I hope Sandy's not left his mark on you. We'll get his kick in the tail round about January
Well, darn. Why bother running, then??? No chicken in every pot campaigning either, I guess. sheesh
Haha they forgot to add *or putting vending machines in the hallway! I remember those promises!
I'm lucky that jamie oliver came in to my son's school and re-did the menu. Their food is actually really good and my son loves it :) The pets though I am sure that he would want to change!
I have followed U :) marcchanelette.blogspot.com
Darn bureaucrats! They really take the joy out of life!Happy Weekending!
Haaa.a.aahhaaha.. I have heard those promises, over and over again. Funny thing, some times they make a win! Oh the thinks they think!
Haha..politics in the classroom, including 5th graders :-) That is too bad..they might have some great ideas to better the entire school system!
I don't buy that for a second! You would be an amazing teacher. Seriously. You see kids for the actual (small) human beings that they are. But I have to admit I did think the notice was pretty funny.
My sister is a teacher. It's quite the challenging job these days!=)
So then why is it that kids running for student council are prohibited from promising things they cannot deliver whereas those running for our state and national offices are under no such restrictions? Teaching fifth grade is a hoot. I know this because I've done it.
I like your blog!Check out mine sometime if you want <3http://aimerose.blogspot.com
I think the latter is an excellent idea. Never underestimate a group of kids and their imaginations. They can come up with great ideas and solutions.
I'm always amused by directives telling people what they can't do. The implication is that, apart from the specifics prohibited (in this case pets and food) everything else is fair game. So it's ok to bring home-made explosives into class, urinate on the floor, drink vodka in the playground etc!
Lol! Can't stop laughing....heeeelp! Ha ha ha...
LOL! Well, needed to be said!Found you through the weekend blog walk!<3 Vanessa 7Jaded blog
I hate to comment here but didn't know how else to contact you. Anyway, I think you'd be a great asset for this week's Mom Connection. http://www.thenaptimereview.com/2012/11/mc-3-how-do-you-get-your-kids-to-clean.htmlPlease email me ASAP if you'd like to be a guest Mom.My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Look forward to hearing from you.
I was a teacher, so I can relate. Trying to think like a fifth grader, in order to head problems off at the pass, can get old!
Oh but that a 5th grader could rule the cafeteria!
Nice post, the best. thank you.
Visiting from the hop. Maybe they are trying to instill more personal responsibility on the kids? As in the kids who take the initiative to ask for more guidance from teachers on speech writing will fare better as the student body will soon see? Odd that so little is offered.
Too bad you couldn't be a teacher... the kids would've loved you :)
Oh my, wouldn't have thought of that:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
Being a teacher is definitely an interesting job....you would never believe some of the stuff I see and hear.
