Want elected officials to visit your school? Let students do the ask

A group of fourth grade Golden Valley Orchard School advocates is feeling confident after speaking to San Juan School Board members during a packed school board meeting recently. After hearing other students give reports on how their schools were doing, this group of charter school students decided to do the same and began strategizing on how to build a relationship with board members.

The students wrote their own scripts and delivered handmade notes to the superintendent and school board members inviting them to their festive May Day celebration. This resulted in San Juan School Board President Michael McKibbin visiting the school and demonstrating to the students the power of their activism.
