  • Lee 5th Graders Win National Mock Election Award

    The fifth grade at Lee Avenue School has been selected as the winner of the 2016 National Student/Parent Mock Election award by the National Association of Secondary School Principals for outstanding contributions to teaching democracy. They were selected as the top school in the country for their research and writing project about the Presidential candidates. For several months, they read articles about the candidates and followed the debates. After analyzing the candidates’ campaign platforms, each student chose which candidate would make a better President, and wrote a research-based argument advocating for that candidate. In the week prior to the election, each fifth grader cast a vote in the National Student/Parent Mock Election. They then closely followed the results of the actual election, analyzing the Electoral College map as updates were announced. They watched the Inauguration live, and analyzed the Inauguration Address given by President Trump as it related to his campaign. Throughout this unit of study, students became more engaged citizens, gaining a better understanding of the democratic process of selecting a new President. They continue to express a keen interest in government, and closely follow current events in an informed manner. Congratulations to the fifth grade on being awarded this national honor.
