Eight students from grades 2-5 had a chance to ask the campus director questions and offer suggestions about how best to run Varnett Public School Southwest.
Campus Director Ni’Cole Mukes and assistant principal Jesse Arps fielded questions from the students who make up the Principal’s Advisory Committee. The students were chosen based on their leadership qualities.
Special guests were Mr. Kerry Shelton, the transportation director, and Ms. Dinah Adams, the lead bus driver.
Advisory Committee members discussed with Mr. Shelton such issues as students doing homework on the bus, how to handle students who may be disruptive, policies regarding cell phones, seat belts and other issues.
Members of the student committee have to follow certain rules when meeting with campus administrators. They included:
- Being in school uniform with shirts tucked in and shoes tied.
- Taking the meeting seriously.
- Raising their hand and waiting to be called upon to speak.
- Waiting until a topic is discussed before asking a question or making a comment.
The next meeting is set for March 23.
