Keep SRO Homero Andrade at Weddington Schools

We as parents, volunteers and active community members at Weddington Elementary felt compelled to search out your contact information and let you know what an asset Officer Andrade is to our school and Weddington community!  He continually goes above and beyond his call of duty to make sure that our children and staff are safe and secure.  He also goes out of his way to speak to children on a one on one basis in the halls, giving them high-fives.  He makes our children feel comfortable with speaking to an officer.  Which, as you may agree, is so critical in today's world, that if a time arises when they are in a situation, they feel safe and secure in going to him.  Because of Officer Andrade they are not afraid of authority, but actually have learned to respect and trust our protectors and heroes in uniform.
He is invested in the families at Weddington schools, the  community and, ultimately, our children.  For example, Officer Andrade has come to speak to Girl Scouts (Troop #2283) numerous times while they were working on our "Respecting Authority" petals in Kindergarten and First Grade.  He even knows siblings of our children, that are not yet attending the schools, when he greets families at our car rider line . This is just one example of how much he is a fixture at Weddington schools.  He has on numerous occasions helped out at school events, not because that is his job, but because he cares about the school.

These examples just show his character, willingness to go above and beyond, and more importantly, the lasting and positive impact he is having on our young kids.  Officer Andrade is helping to shape the child-authority relationship in a positive, respectful way.  He is always smiling and happy to see everyone.  He is doing an awesome job.

With all of this being said, it is critical in today's school culture to have an SRO like Officer Andrade present at our schools.  An individual that knows the children, the staff, and the families and someone who is familiar with their normal behaviors and can seek out inconsistencies.  He is an asset to our schools and our community and we are signing this petition to have him reinstated at Weddington Schools.  Please do not take Officer Andrade away from our children.

If you support SR Officer Homero Andrade being reinstated at Weddington Schools, please sign this petition and pass it to other parents and neighbors in our community!

Thanks, 

Volunteers at Weddington Elementary
