Local youngsters get a lesson in democracy

The halls of Memorial School were buzzing the week of Jan. 23 with talks of Student Senate elections.

Throughout the week, a total of 75 learners in third, fourth and fifth grade gave speeches and shared posters that highlighted their core values and reasons why they thought they were the best candidate to represent their homeroom.

On Jan. 26, all members of the 11 classes cast two votes apiece to elect one student senator and one alternate for their homerooms.

The excitement and anticipation was felt by every learner and staff member at Memorial.

Mrs. Poach, Mrs. Grenier and Ms. Johnson are excited to work with the 11 newly-appointed officers and the 11 alternates throughout the rest of the school year to help students advocate for and enrich the experiences of all learners at Memorial School.
