7th Grade Political Convention

Mr. Gentilli and Mr. Swenson hosted their annual political convention with their 7th grade Social Studies students beginning on Thursday, December 21. Students debated the pros and cons of many controversial student topics including school uniforms, the death penalty, tablets vs. textbooks, animal testing, and free speech.

Students were divided into state teams. States voted on each topic after seeing a video and hearing a speech from both sides.

Alison Zimmerman served as chairperson of the convention. Skyler Beyer, Ella Blask, Joe Mueller Graves, Alexa Lindstrom, Madeline Miller, and Davis Richer ran for the office of president.
