Today all of the 4th grade students (117) gathered in the Auditorium for Election Day. Â Our speeches started with Ed Clark, former mayor of Greeley, sharing a speech. Â We are fortunate enough to have Mr. Clark working as head of security making University Schools one of the safest schools in the state of Colorado. Â It was interesting to hear about his time as mayor. Â Mr. Clark reminded our students that being mayor of Ameritowne will also be a big responsibility.
Five students shared speeches for mayor, including Peyton from our class. Â Next, all 5 candidates for judge shared their speeches, including Michael from our class. Â No matter which job these students hold, all ten of the students involved will be leadersÂ during our day of Ameritowne.
The voting opened at 12:00 on Thursday. Â All of the students had a chance to electronically, anonymously submit their vote. Â At the end of the day Friday, the student who will be mayor and the student who will be judge will be announced in each 4th grade class. Â Congratulations to all of the students who were brave enough to share a speech and be a bulldog leader!
