First graders are becoming “Service Elves” by doing secret acts of service.  They’ve been cleaning, feeding pets, and doing many other kind deeds.  They add their elf to this hallway display when they’ve completed their service.

Mr. Ewell's Class Visits State Capitol

Submitted by angela.youd on Fri, 12/02/2022 - 10:35

We are surely grateful for the invitation from Representative Doug Welton to participate in the Civics Engagement Day at the State Capitol. The students had a brief introduction to the legislative (law making) process followed by instructions of how they would conduct themselves in the mock session. Then they took their places on the floor of the House of Representatives and began presenting and debating the bills. They were able to use the desks, key pads and microphones to conduct business.
