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.”
