Stu­dents meet Ben Franklin and learn about the Con­sti­tu­tion

The Phoenix - - COMMUNITY - —Sub­mit­ted by Todd Oswald

The East Coven­try El­e­men­tary School Stu­dent Coun­cil trav­eled to the his­toric West Ch­ester Court­house on Sept. 17 to par­tic­i­pate in the county’s recog­ni­tion cer­e­mony. Stu­dents signed a copy of the Con­sti­tu­tion and par­tic­i­pated in the pro­gram. Even Benjamin Franklin made an ap­pear­ance.

All stu­dents also had a chance to vote in a mock elec­tion held re­cently. Stu­dents learned that the Con­sti­tu­tion serves as our frame­work for our coun­try’s democ­racy. They learned that the Con­sti­tu­tion out­lines the process for elect­ing our of­fi­cials.
