YOUR FREEDOM, YOUR FUTURE
October 26, 2016
Just two weeks before our presidential election, students will have the chance to delve deeply into the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. We will be partnering with professionals and community leaders to make sure students understand the issues that define our political parties. We will run a school-wide election through the support of Upton’s town clerk, giving our kids the chance to understand the responsibility of voting. We’ll run a mock town meeting for all juniors, debating the questions on the statewide ballot this November. We will give students the chance to participate in a range of workshops on topics including financial literacy, personal privacy, business ethics, sustainability, and more.
Check out this screencast in order to learn more about these opportunities and more as we take an in-depth look at the theme of “Your Freedom, Your Future”.
