Participating in Democracy

Today is Inauguration Day and Donald J. Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States. The students at Maple Road Elementary School had the opportunity to find out what it is like to vote back in November, thanks to Andrew Romano and his Eagle Scout project. Andrew built an awesome voting booth for Maple Road to give kids a hands-on lesson in how our Democracy works. The Maple Road PTO donated $50 to help with the building costs. On Nov. 4, students from Maple Road used the booth to cast their "vote" for president. Teaching our children about the voting process is important and Maple Road thanks Andrew for making this lesson a realistic one for the children. Maple Road Principal Bill Kane is seen here with Andrew.
