Clark School students “at the polls.”
Dear WGSD Family,
Over the past few weeks, district students have engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate lessons and activities in order to help them better understand the critically important roll voting plays in our democracy. Participating in Kids Voting is just one way we help teach students how to understand issues from varied perspectives and how to advocate for what you believe.
