CMS STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN MOCK ELECTION

On Tuesday, November 6, the 8th grade students at Charlotte Middle School participated in a mock election in order to better understand the process of voting and their civic duty. Before entering the voting booth, students were able to research candidates in order to be more informed citizens. Charlotte City Clerk, Ginger Terpstra, provided sample ballots and applications to vote so that students could understand what the voting process truly feels like from walking into a precinct, applying to vote, and then actually submitting their ballot.

CHARLOTTE HIGH SCHOOL SHOWS SUCCESS THROUGH MULTIPLE MEASURES

Guest Writer: Bill Barnes, CHS, CEMC, CPSPS Principal

There is no doubt that schools are complex organizations with many pressures, both internal and external. Those inside the system, like the administrators, teachers, staff, board members, students, and parents, have goals and ideas about how the school should work, while those outside of the system, like alumni and community members, have goals for the school as well, often informed by their own past experiences, interactions with those currently working or learning in the school, or what they hear from others out in the community.
