    Sponsor:  Ms. Fanus

    Dolphin Bay Elementary works hard to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff. 

    To help with this, some of our responsible fifth grade students are chosen to serve as Safety Patrols. They are assigned to a post, an area within the school, where they monitor the students to help maintain an orderly and safe environment. They attend to their posts before the morning bell rings and after school.

    To be chosen for this position, the students write an essay explaining why they should be chosen, and their reason for wanting to participate in this program. Once the essays are submitted, teachers and administration score them to ensure that the most promising candidates are chosen.

    These students work hard to make certain that our younger students are safe at all times.

    It is an honor to be able to serve as a Safety Patrol, and our students do a fabulous job!
