Leader: Group E

Situation/Case Study:

I had the before school activities using the gym next to my office. The noise was terrible. Kids were doing things which violated many of the safety rule we were trying to establish. The leaders of this group were not very good at management. I talked to the leaders about the noise and safety--it has gotten a lot better. The leaders are now asking me about appropriate activities-- "Do you let them do _____?" Communication has improved and the noise level has gone down. I am still concerned about the long day some of these kids put in when their parents bring them to school so early.
