Members are selected for their leadership, courtesy, dependability, interest in their job, attitude toward others and scholastic standing. Patrollers direct children during arrival and occasionally at dismissal. As school-age leaders in safety, patrol members teach other students about safety on a peer-to-peer basis. They also serve as models for younger children, who look up to them. Typically, teachers and principals appoint patrol members, who participate with parental approval. Ms. Mitchell the school counselor will serve as the patrol advisor.
