Students participated in a mock council meeting. Other students will be shadowed city employees. The day was complete with a student "mayor". Student were able to attain a first hand lesson in civics and city government. A proclamation honoring Eagle Scout Matthew Newton was read. Thanks to all the city employees and students who participated!

It is refreshing to see a post that doesn't spin things into a negative democratic, or anti mayor drew light. Just including a photo of Tom Serra without anything nasty is kind.ReplyDelete
I will be sharing this page more often if I see this fair play.
Pointing out truth isn't nasty when its true. For years the press and eye slighted the opposition by not even providing coverage. People are too naive to see it. Anti Drew? Please give us something citizens can pat him on the back for if that makes YOU feel better This blog was long over due.ReplyDelete
The biggest lesson the students learned from Drew, Serra and McKenna was "patronage counts".ReplyDelete
