Dear Ms. Maratou,
I think ACS students should be allowed to wear PJs and slippers to school every day and be able to bring a stuffed animal. I know that this has some problems, like the fact that we could get cold in the winter when we wear PJs, but I have four good reasons for why we should.
Everyone knows that PJs have the power of S.L.E.E.P. (Super Large and Epic Emotion of Power). You don’t? This is what S.L.E.E.P. does: every time you wear PJs you get a surge of power. This can only happen to kids age 12 and below. The kids will have extra energy when they wear their PJs. This will help teachers in two ways. First, we will have so much energy that P.E. will not tire us. Secondly, having extra energy means being able to pay attention easier. This will help teachers because the lessons will finish faster and without interruptions.
PJs also help us have more self-control, as recent scientific studies have shown. This way, we will not play tag and lag behind in line or shout when we pass the ‘zone of silence’. We would get to places faster and have a straighter line with no gaps. Kids will not stay in for recess because they were playing tag in line if they can tell themselves to stop playing tag. Kids will not bully or be mean to anyone because with PJs on they can control their actions. In class, we will remember the rules and not call out or interrupt you when you are explaining something.
Another reason we should wear PJs every day is that we will be able to get ready easily and get to school earlier. We will not have to waste time picking which clothes or shoes to wear. We will get to school faster and not miss any lesson time. Our clothes will be comfortable and we won’t worry about not being able to run or jump in our stiff everyday clothes.
Then there is the argument about stuffed animals. Everyone knows they are like siblings to us. You understand how hard it is to be away from them every day. If we could only bring them with us, perhaps we would be more jubilant and positive throughout the day. We would have ‘encouragement and help’ from our toys because we love them so much. We could play with them during recess and not complain about having no playground equipment or having to wait in line for tetherball. (And if we make a mistake in the spelling test we will say “It’s Teddy’s fault! He told me how to spell that word!”)
These are my four reasons for why we should wear PJs to school every day. I believe this will improve our school and make it a better place for students and teachers alike. I hope our school will realize that this is the way to improve the way students learn and behave: PJs should be the official school uniform for ACS!
Your concerned student,
