Now that our first unit is over it is time to begin the mayor race. The mayor position is the one elected position at JA Biztown. This week, each fifth grade class will run their own classroom mayor race. Interested students filled out an "Intent to Run" form last week. They also recruited campaign managers to assist them and help plan their campaigns.
We have four amazing candidates. They have been busy today putting up signs, talking to classmates and getting their messages out there. Candidates are using recess time or their own free time to work on their posters, flyers and speeches. They are dedicated, hard working and each of them deserves to be mayor...who will win?
This Friday, January 18th, candidates will give their prepared speech to the class. The class will vote anonymously and our volunteer voter registration clerks will count the votes. The winner will be our official mayor elect and participate in our fifth grade wide election on Monday, January 28th.
