|Achievement Unlocked: Fifth Grade Safety Patrol|
It wasn't necessarily guaranteed. You had to be recommended by your teachers (which I knew wouldn't be an issue), but you also had to maintain a certain grade point average, which I think was all A's and B's, but he was close to having a C more than once near the end of fourth grade, so we had to discuss the fact that he might not get it and that he needed to work harder. But he did pull up his C, and we received the notification at the beginning of this year that he would be a patrol. However, they rotate 9 weeks on and 9 weeks off, so he didn't start (or get his spiffy sash and badge) until today.
Congratulations, Luke, on fulfilling a lifelong dream! Wishing you many more successes such as this.
