The Voters Have Spoken!

Our third grade classes started off the year learning about citizenship, and what it means to be a good citizen.  We also discussed our rights and responsibilities as American citizens.  We focused on one major right and responsibility, voting, and our students voted to participate in a community service project.

One book we read, “Grace for President” by Kelly DiPucchio, talked about a class voting for a class president and how they used the electoral college as their format.  Each student in our classes was a representative of a state or multiple states, and voted between two admirable service projects: helping to collect or donate items to a local food pantry or the Concord – Merrimack County SPCA.  The SPCA won by a landslide!  I made sure to commend the students that voted to help out the food pantry, and for caring for those who need help to get the food they need.  Our school does help out a local food pantry, so they will be able to participate in that service project if they wish in the near future.

We look forward to seeing the energy and hard work we KNOW our students will put into getting the word out and collecting donations for this organization.
