    i think we should have them because they are cool yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh πŸ™‚

  2. I don’t think we should have them becusa I just don’t like uniforms and it would be kinda weird wearing the same things as others for 5 days a week!!!!!!!!!!!!:} πŸ™ πŸ˜‰

  3. Turner says:

    I think uniforms are bad because you would have to wear them every day which would suck.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      You wear clothes everyday, so what would be the difference?

      • Hayden Smale says:

        It wouldn’t be the same because everyone would where the same thing and i bet they wouldn’t look that cool.

        • Mr. Bell says:

          Quick fix: wear (wear clothing); where (location – Where are you?)

          According to your argument then, hockey uniforms are not cool?

  4. Tyler says:

    We should not have school uniforms because they are uncomfortable and are just a bad idea!
    We should be allowed hats though!!!!!!!

    • Mr. Bell says:

      How do you know they are uncomfortable? Have you worn uniforms before? Is your hockey uniform uncomfortable?

    • Hayden Smale says:

      You can keep trying with the hat’s tyler.

      • Mr. Bell says:

        Quick Fix: An apostrophe is to show possession or a contraction. e.g. Tyler’s hat (the hat belonging to Tyler)

        You do not use an apostrophe for a plural noun: ‘You can keep trying with the hats Tyler.”

  5. savannah says:

    I don’t want uniforms because they look creepy wearing the same thing every day.

  6. Allie Sampson says:

    My opinion of school uniforms is cool and weird at the same time because you’d have to wear the same outfit everyday over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over for the whole year.So, I wouldn’t want school uniforms. It would be cool too because I never had to wear school uniforms.

  7. Hayden Smale says:

    NO I will refuse to wear them and I will never go to a school with uniforms. Uniforms are the most stupid thing ever invented and if we do have school uniforms i’m moving schools.

  8. keagan says:

    I would like to have school uniforms because I like to wear lots of cloths πŸ™‚

  9. Rylee Johnson says:

    I know that some schools have uniforms because they don’t want children judging each other by what they wear. I wouldn’t be very happy having uniforms because I like wearing my own clothes but I wouldn’t mind.Either way it’s not really a big deal. If I could chose I would say no uniforms. Is there any possibility it might happen?:|

    • Mr. Bell says:

      This topic is always discussed, and I chose it because students usually have an opinion. I do not know that it is currently in the works though.

  10. Ashley Evin says:

    I think that uniforms is a bad idea because then everybody would look the same. If we ever got uniforms then I would wear them because we would have to. But I probably not like them.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      So to extend your thought, why are uniforms more acceptable elsewhere…say for a soccer team?

      • Ashley Evin says:

        Because we all have to look together like a team in a school you should be able to wear what you want……..

        I think that it would be cool and weird.

  11. brant says:

    i think uniforms are dumb to wear because we are not like nazi’s blond hair same suit blue eyes. we should be able to wear clothes the way we want.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Why then are uniforms used in workplaces, for teams, and individuals sponsored to…say ride bikes for a specific company? Are uniforms acceptable elsewhere?

      • Rylee Johnson says:

        Mr. Bell what do you think about uniforms?

        • Mr. Bell says:

          I think it would reduce the battles at home when buying clothes (affordable vs brand names), and at school students would be judged less by what they are wearing. Getting ready in the morning would be easier too. It is an interesting idea to talk about.

  12. kimberly loucks says:

    I think we should NOT have school uniforms because some people have there different style of clothing and well some people don’t won’t to dress the same as other people, that would be weird. so i don’t think we should have school uniforms.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      there = over there
      their = belongs to (Some people have their different…)

      Wouldn’t uniforms make it easier for kids and families to buy clothes and not have to worry about the brand names of the clothes that are in style?

  13. jacob harmon says:

    No we should not wear uniforms because we would all look the same and what would the teachers wear?

  14. Jonny says:

    NO I do not want uniforms they suck soo much because I think we should have the freedom to wear what we want and not to have to wear STUPID uniforms to school. They are NOT FUN.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      What makes clothing choices fun? If you had a choice from a list of items to wear, would this change your opinion?

  15. Steve Scott says:

    in my mind i think uniforms are useless and dumb plus they all LOOK A LIKE!!!!!! talk about dumb right?

  16. mat says:

    dress jackets and ties

  17. Jacob Kealey says:

    I wouldn’t want to wear a uniform I rather jump into space a die from alien life.Because uniforms for boys would literally look really weird and also make you look like those stupid spoiled rich kids. AND I DON”T ON ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WANT TO DRESS IN UNIFORMS AND LOOK LIKE A RICH KID!!!

    • Jacob Kealey says:

      If it was a tux on the other hand I wouldn’t mind at all.Because I think tuxedos are AWESOME. 007 style πŸ™‚

  18. Rylee Johnson says:

    is there any possibility we are getting uniforms. Is that why you are asking us?

    • Mr. Bell says:

      It is a discussion starter. Some students struggle when giving an opinion. This topic is a good one because most students have an opinion on this topic.

      Anything is possible, but I have heard nothing about uniforms anytime soon.

  19. Calvin says:

    I don’t want uniforms YOU CAN’T TELL ANYBODY APART! πŸ™

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Do speed skaters wear uniforms? Do they match? Are these kinds of uniforms appropriate?

  20. BQ says:

    Well if we wore uniforms we would have to wash them every day and that would be chaos for my family.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Usually you will have a collection of clothes that are approved for the school uniform. You won’t have to do laundry every single day.

  21. Anna says:

    I think school uniforms would be really cool because if someone has cloths they like, and someone has really cool cloths then ( like almost cooler) it is like a war I guess you could say. But with uniforms you have the same cloths on, so people should not get upset.

    So I say YES to school uniforms!!! πŸ˜€

  22. Ashley Evin says:

    Mr.Bell are we going to have uniforms because you are asking us?

  23. kimberly loucks says:

    Mr. bell will we half to wear uniforms???

    • Mr. Bell says:

      word fix – Will we ‘have’ uniforms

      There isn’t anything planned right now about uniforms.

  24. Lea Andrews says:

    I don’t think that we should have to wear school uniforms because you have to wear the same things as everyone else and u wont be able to people apart from a long distance away and i hate school uniforms…. I never had to wear them and I never will.

  25. Hayden Smale says:

    If we have uniforms then what’s the point of buying clothes and then you can’t wear nicer clothing.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      You wouldn’t have to wear the uniform everywhere – only at school. You would still be able to wear nicer clothing elsewhere. What makes you think the uniforms wouldn’t be as nice as your other clothes?

  26. mYRAndA/tOTski Wawryk says:

    yes yes yes!!!!we should totaly wear uniforms …but it depends on how it looks .I like the Japanese uniforms because they planed it so neetly ,even their socks are made to suit the uniform πŸ˜€ I LOVE THE CHINES AND JAPANESE
