7th Grade Social Studies Entry

In order to make the Roman Republic come alive for our students, the 7th grade social studies teachers contacted Senator Barry Finegold asking if he would come talk to our students.  Senator Finegold will address our 7th graders on Thursday March 27th at 8:00am. He will be speaking to the students about real world present-day connections to Rome, more specifically civic responsibility, representing citizens and how the local government system works, as well as discussing relationships with constituents and the challenges of representing a diverse population.

Students will be comparing the Roman Republic with our government, and following up the visit by having students write a letter to Senator Finegold about an issue that is important in their lives.
