Park Day at Beilfuss Park

Park Day at Beilfuss Park

Our students visit Beilfuss Park every Wednesday as part of our summer camp program. We love this park and have had many fun memories there. However, our students have noticed that there is no water fountain and often grow thirsty after their day of play. They decided to all write letters to their alderman to try and effect change. Here are a few of their notes.

 

Dear Mr. Alderman,

I really love the park and my favorite thing is the tire swing, but there’s one problem that there is no portable bathroom. Some people have to use the bathroom on themselves. There’s this other problem that we need a water fountain because we play around for four hours so we have to bring water and it runs out. I will appreciate if you will do this stuff for us.

Sincerely,

Lizette (4th Grade)

 

Dear Mr. Alderman,

I would like a bathroom in the park because we go every Wednesday. We feel like using it be have to hold it. It is very uncomfortable. I want a water fountain because I play soccer and I am thirsty. I want a pool to cool off. Finally, I want a motel.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Alderman,

We really enjoy the park but its missing some things that are needed. There are not any bathrooms or even a water fountain. We could also make the park look more colorful by adding a variety of flowers. We need bathrooms because of have to hold it in until we get back to the church. There isn’t a spot were a mom could change her baby indoors either.  We need a water fountain because we get thirsty, and some people don’t have water bottles. They could also keep people at the park.

Thank you,

Kayla (4th Grade)

 

Dear Mr. Alderman,

Every Wednesday we go to the park. We need a water fountain because we have to carry a big jug full of water to the park. It’s really heavy so we get tired. We have to carry supplies like cups, ice packs, and balls. A lot of people get hurt at the park so there should be medicine packs. If you do this, thank you.

Dear Mr. Alderman,

Can you make a water fountain at the park? Because sometimes people forget to bring their water bottles, and get thirsty and hot. They might leave the park, go home and get water and might not come back in the park.

Thank you so much,

Dear Mr. Alderman,

Last week at Park Day, I asked Ms. Jessica if I could get another cup of water. She said that there was no more water. So, I thought that we should install a water fountain for people who don’t have water bottles and are thirsty. I also thought that we should get bathrooms for people who need to use the toilet. There should also be a dog area where people can walk and play with their dogs.

Dear Mr. Alderman,

I go to the park once a week and we play at the park and then we have to go to the bathroom. But there is no bathrooms at the park so we need a bathroom at the park for we don’t use it on are stuff. And we need a water fountain at the park because we play at the park and we get hot so we need some water for we don’t fall out.

Dear Mr. Alderman,

Well first of all we go to the park every week! We love the park. We need your help on getting a water fountain and a bathroom because we play at the park and we get sweaty. Some of us don’t bring a water bottle, some of us forget to bring one. The little kids need to use the bathroom and it’s hard for them to hold it. So it’s not easy for them. I will be thankful if you would help us out.

Sincerely,

Jennifer (6th Grade)

 

Dear Mr. Alderman,

We wish that we had a water fountain and a bathroom at our park. Because we go there all the time and sometimes we get really thirsty or have to go to the bathroom really bad. Then we would have to walk back to our houses or church to use the bathroom. We also have to carry water to the park with us and it can be really heavy. We would be so excited if you could build us a water fountain and bathroom! Please help us! It get so hot out when we play.

Dear Mr. Alderman,

We were talking about things we would want in the park. We were also hoping you could put a water fountain and a bathroom in the park. We go to the park every week. Sometimes we need to go to the bathroom and have accidents. The water fountain and bathroom would be so helpful.
