5th Graders are given an opportunity to develop leadership skills through our School Safety Patrol Program. 4th Graders are selected at the end of 4th grade based on conduct and academic grades. The Safety Patrol's of Louis Sheffield Elementary is sponsored by Mr. Carmichael. The duties of a Safety Patrol include serving at assigned morning and afternoon posts to assist in the safe and orderly arrival and dismissal of students, assisting adults throughout the school, and participating in flag ceremonies such as Color Guard. Safety Patrols are expected to be courteous, follow all school rules, and be on time to their post with the proper uniform. Safety Patrols must also maintain an "A - B" average academically and an "A" in conduct.
Our Safety Patrols are given the wonderful opportunity to go on a trip to Washington D.C. each year. To pay for this trip, patrols must raise the funds needed for it. Currently, our patrols are having several fundraisers. “Smencils” are for sale daily in the hallway of building 1. The cost is $1.25 for these one of a kind pencils. Patrols are also selling magnetic calendars for $5.00 in the car rider loop in the morning and in the office daily. Just ask Mrs. Tilley in the office and she can help you out. Look for more fundraisers coming soon.
