Hi! I may be just a kid and this may seem like just another complaint, but I do think i have some pretty good reasoning. If there is anything I've learned in history, it is that anyone can make a change and that sometimes even compromises are possible.  I'm not saying that we should be allowed to have our phones during class. (We should put up punishments if you have it out without a teachers permission during class) . I do understand that the school would like us to be more social, but currently, with our technology, we talk on our phones to each other quite a bit. The way I made one of my friends was talking about music and sharing a playlist with her on snapchat of some good songs. One of the reasons I think we should have ou phones back is that we run a mile in gym class that has to be in 13 minutes or less. Which means each lap has t be about 3.25 minutes. Last year I was able to time myself and speed up and take breaks within time. Another thing is that when I have my headphones in, I walk or run to the beat of the music. (it's pretty fast-paced). It's also helpful in class when teachers would give us independent work and I could tune out other distractions because I would have music on. I also can say that during gym class and lunch I can save fun memories of my friends which I regret not being able to do before I moved here. I didn't have a phone before then so I couldn't text my friends and its a miracle I was able to find them, thanks to social media. Now, I can take pictures of my friends (with permission of course). I think all and all, as long as we aren't on them during class it should be fine. I really hope you consider this and possibly give our phones back :) Thank you.
