Introducing an Executive in the making....


Tommy came home from school the other day soooo excited because he was going to run for 3rd grade Student council. He was so cute! And so excited, and so nervous!! He stayed up late that night writting his speech. Then he woke up early, took a shower, (even put on deoderant , he said) , put on a nice shirt and off he went. I was kind of nervous for him, because he practiced his speech a couple of times and I could tell he was really nervous. I told him that a lot of kids were running and it was ok if he didn't win, just proud of him for trying. I could tell as soon as he came running in the door with his friend Rheanna, what the outcome was. He was nominated as the boy candidate for his class and Rheanna was nominated as the girl candidate. That is exactly how they wanted it!! I was excited and proud of both of them. Tommy's friend Rheanna told me that his teacher Mrs. Judd liked his speech so much that she showed it to another teacher. Which suprised me, since I let him write his speech himself, and it really wasn't anything fancy. He even typed it on the computer by himself, and that took forever!!

Here is his speech:


why should you vote for me for student council ? Because I want the voices of Mrs. Judds class to be heard. I will help make sure the ideas and choices are fair. You can trust me because I am honest, and I care about others.
i want to run for camelot student council to help camelot be a better school and lots of fun!!!!!
