For the first time in 9 years of going to the same school, our school has finally established a school-wide ban on nuts and peanuts :shock: . It was not only required that my classmates follow these rules, but the whole school this year :idea: . I guess all the work that I did last year educating my class and my teachers has finally paid off :D . Sincerely, Nick Pothier.

Wow! Way to go, Nick! You paved the way for the others. You should be proud and it's great to think you will be safe in school this year.

Congrats, Nick! Even if you don't *know* about other people in your school with a peanut allergy, I bet there are others with the allergy who are also benefitting from the policy.

Great job Nick!!
You should be very proud of yourself, you will have helped many students. Not just those in your school but your school will become an example for other schools.
It must also feel good knowing that no one has touched the door knobs or had a drink from the water fountain after eating something 'nutty'.

Way to go Nick. You are creating a better, safer world for children, and you are teaching us all how to stand up for ourselves and others.
