Student council members invited Utah Senator Deidre M. Henderson and Utah Representative Mike K. McKell to visit Sierra Bonita Elementary School in Spanish Fork. The legislators were able to participate in upper-grade math lessons and lower-grade guided reading. Henderson showed sixth-grade students how laws are passed and gave students an opportunity to participate through a mock process. McKell taught fourth-grade students about Utah history and government.
One of the highlights of Sierra Bonita’s Legislator Education Day was a stop in Miss Peggy’s medically fragile unit where they were able to meet some extraordinary students.
McKell said, “Senator Henderson and I had a great visit at Sierra Bonita Elementary today. Sierra Bonita’s student council was outstanding, and they were great hosts. You should continue to be very proud of the students in the Nebo School District.”
