JKHA Students Feel Election Fever

Election fever was felt all over JKHA. The early childhood and lower school students exercised their right to vote on age appropriate levels. Several classes cast their votes for which book to read next in class. They filled out voter registration cards, and were then sent to the polling table where their registration card was checked. Once approved, they sat down at the private voting “booth” and filled out the ballot. Second grade used the results to generate a math lesson to tally them onto a bar graph. The students then “became” their vote as they placed themselves onto a human graph. They were voting on which Miss Nelson book to read next. Kindergartners had the chance to vote for a special theme day (silly sock day or soft sweatshirt day). The older fourth grade students incorporated Election Day into their writing program. Utilizing their skills to write persuasive paragraphs, students wrote passionately on why it is critical for every American citizen to vote.

Middle school students have been campaigning since last week to vie for roles on Student Council. After hearing speeches on Monday, students cast their vote via online poll on Monday night to determine who would get elected.
