Follow up visits to individuals occurred for a question and answer session. Students and staff found the presentation to be very informative. Our Bobcats vowed to follow the "Bobcat Code of Honor".
Students at Mecca Elementary School had the opportunity to participate in running for a student council position. Prior to delivering the speeches, the participants learned about civic responsibilities, which included leading by example and the right to vote. Both fifth and sixth grade students were required to demonstrate eligibility to participate by turning in a petition that clearly indicated they met the requirements of being a student who was academically sound, exhibited positive signs of good citizenship, and expressed their goals for the position of their interest in an essay. The speeches were top notch and our attending audience listened attentively. The ASB election process proved to be a learning experience for all students involved and those elected to represent their peers will have multiple opportunities throughout the year to develop their leadership skills.
