Senator Sanders at PAML

We were fortunate to have a US Senator drop in and visit with many 6th graders and a handful of 5th graders on Thursday, January 23rd.   The 6th grade team of teachers produced this video of the question and answer session he had with the students.

I was so impressed with the students' questions and attention during the visit.  The time was short so, unfortunately, Senator Sanders was unable to answer ALL the questions the students had, but they are working at finding the answers in other ways: email, checking his website, etc.

Our 8th grade students were invited to the high school assembly where they were able to listen to and ask questions of the senator with the 9th - 12th grade students.  Here is a view from the 8th grade seats:

It was an exciting day at school, and our students were engaged in authentic learning.
