A Race to Run the Forest

A Race to Run the Forest Pic

After learning about Election Day, first-graders at Mills Pond Elementary School learned about the electoral process during a forest election on Nov. 6.

Three candidates - Bartholomew Bear, Betsy Beaver and Fitzgerald Fox – were all vying for the position to be the head of the forest. The students listened to each candidate’s platform and learned why they would be the best one to run the forest. The first-graders then cast their vote for their favorite candidate.
