Last week, the students at Foothills Montessori School held their first mock election on Tuesday, November 6. The PTO set up an election booth in the amphitheater so students could vote in privacy. After exiting the polls they received an “I VOTED” sticker to wear with pride.
The primary students were able to vote for their favorite color of M&Ms, while the elementary and middle school students had a chance to vote for their choice for President. The red M&M won by a landslide but the Presidential race was a little tighter.
It was a wonderful opportunity for these young voices to be heard and feel that their opinion matters! Long live red M&Ms!
