|Dom Peters with Secretary of State Dennis Richardson|
Thank so much for electing me to be the Kid Governor of Oregon. I am so excited to be the first Kid Governor. I’d like to congratulate the other candidates who ran against me. You all did an amazing job on your videos and speeches. I hope you can do some of the things you talked about in your platforms.
I’d like to thank Secretary of State Dennis Richardson for this challenging program, and also Mary Beth Herkert and Deb Royal for organizing the voting. I’m really looking forward to the next year and what is going to happen.
I’ve already started thinking of ways I can make a difference in my own school. I set up a Super Kind Helpers Club where a group of kids sign up for a day of the week and spend the first 5 minutes of their recess checking in on everyone. We make sure kids are being included, nobody is feeling bullied, and everyone has someone to play with. After that, we can play for the rest of our recess. It seems to be going pretty well so far. What about you? Do have any ideas for the club to help people at recess?
I’m also getting started on writing my book. I hope you will join my Super Kind Writers Club, and write a story to encourage others to stop bullying. Stay tuned to this blog for details on my writing club.
I’d love to hear your ideas for helping others at recess. Please leave a comment below.
