In the News!

Our city has a new elementary school, Mountainside Elementary. With this being an election year, the students were able to hold their own election. However, it wasn't for McCain or Obama. It was for Cougar, Moose, and Hawk. That is right. Those were the candidates for the new school's mascot. The students were able to learn about the election process through this experience. Monday was voting day. This picture was on the front page of the local paper today. If you look at the upper left corner, Jenna is getting ready to place her vote in the ballot box. As you can see by the title, Cougar won. My kids were a little disappointed. Robbie and Jenna were really hoping Moose would win.
