Windmuller, an eighth grade stu- dent at White Rock Middle School, Esbon, decided to enter theessay con- test and Mary Sawyer, White Rock Middle School teacher, provided in- formation and rules in entering this contest. Windmuller was one of three in the Kansas Sheriff Association District to receive this honor. Her essay was one of 28 from schools in the district, in- cluding larger schools such as Beloit, Junction City and Salina. Windmuller received the check at a middle school student body assembly Monday after- noon. Windmuller's essay is reprinted here. Violence in School School violence is a problem that millions of kids all over America face, but how can we help make it safer for kids to go to school? Should.we put metal detectors at every door, have teachers constantly patrolling the hall- ways, and daily locker checks? But wouldn't some students consider this an invasion of privacy? Exactly how far can we go with school security? As a student I believe that students them- selves should play a larger role in keep- ing schools violence free. Such as having student hall monitors and coun- selors and more school activities and programs that students can participate in to keep out of trouble. Student hall monitors would have a good effect on both the school and the students. Students know who is picked on the most and who the bullies usually are, so a student would have a better idea of who to watch for in the hall- ways rather than a teacher. These hall monitors could then report any mis- conduct they see in the hallways to a teacher. Not only would this help lower the amount of threats, harass- ment, and stealing in the hallways, but it would also help teach students re- sponsibility and the importance of rules and laws. Kids could also better un- derstand why law enforcers sometimes go to extreme measurers to keep people safe. If a student is having a problem such as if they're contemplating sui- cide or are planning on bringing a gun to school they are likely to tell their friends. Untbrtunately most kids don't take theses cries for help seriously and the results can be tragic. If a student were to learn through training how to help kids they could become peer coun- selors. I think this vcould help many students since kids generally trust people their own age more than adults. If a problem as serious as suicide is confided to a peer counselor then that counselor could act as a mediator be- tween the troubled student and a help- ful adult. This would not only lower the risk of school shootings and stu- dent suicides along with many other problems, but it would also create a stronger trust between students. School activities and programs have helped to keep students out of trouble for years. Unfortunately not all stu- dents want to or can play basketball or join the FBLA. Some of these students instead drive the streets after school or search for someone old enough to buy them cigarettes. A wider variety of school activities would help reduce this problem, whether it means starting a nature club or a yo-yo class where studentscan learn newtricks. Students who join these programs would soon realize they can have just as much fun or more learning rather than getting drunk at a party after school. Another school program that helps keep stu- dents away from drugs is D.A.R.E. This program not only teaches kids to stay away from drugs, but it also teaches them how to say no to drugs and how to avoid situations that could harm them. Another program which teaches stu- dents good values isCharacter Counts. Character Counts rewards students for each time they are seen doing a good deed. These rewards make kids want to show off their good behavior more often. All of these ideas would help lower the violence in schools making safer learning environments. Studentswould be less fearful about being attacked at school so they can concentrate more on learning. They would have a better understanding of why it is essential to have rules. Although we can't solve school violence completely, we can help to make schools a safer place for all kids.
