Bringing Government to Life

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Students in Amy Conant and Liz Scola's classes were treated to a first-hand lesson in government in early November, when Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken visited the Elementary•Middle School via Google Meet.

"We have been studying U.S. government, and our goal was to bring this subject to life through a living visit with this mayor," said Mrs. Conant. "The students practiced their questions, and each student spoke clearly and respectfully. It was a great success!"

The questions included:

  • What does your job entail? 
  • Why did you want to be the mayor?
  • What is your greatest accomplishment? 
  • How can kids help their communities?
