4th Graders Visit the State Capitol

This week, our Fourth Graders visited the Arizona State Capitol, and were given the rare opportunity to be able to sit in the seats on the Floor of the Capitol!!  Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin even allowed the children to present a mock bill and vote on it!  The students in “The House” voted to install a pool at SSJ. The students in “The Senate” approved the bill, but added that it should have a Jacuzzi, a slide, a smoothie bar, and a rope swing. It was also moved that the pool would be paid for with charitable dollars. The Senate won by one vote to pass the bill.  The “Governor” (Senator Debbie McCune Davis, acting Governor), signed the bill with the condition that the pool be turned GREEN on St. Patrick’s Day!!  What a fun lesson for our students to see how our government works!!
