White Plains Elementary School recently held its school-wide election, with students choosing from fifth-grade candidates running for office.
The student body voted for the Student Council offices of president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. Candidates made posters and hung on the walls of the school and then give a speech to all third, fourth, and fifth students in during an assembly in the gym.
After the speeches, these students returned to their classrooms and voted using a Google form.
This year’s officers are Payten Sechrist, president; Body York, vice president; Jonah Adams, secretary, and John Martin, treasurer.
