Election Day

Costume Day at McGuffey is always the day after Halloween, which happened to coincide with the day before Election Day. In Lower Elementary, we combined the two subjects and held an election about candy!

Based on personal preference, the class was split into Team Reese’s and Team Skittles. Each group spent the morning developing a platform and creating posters to support their choice. We then invited the Primary unit to browse our signs and listen to each side lobby for their candy.

Then both Lower Elementary and Primary had the opportunity to vote. When they weren’t voting, they could watch the results come in on the computer. In a nail-biter, Skittles was declared the winner with 53% of the vote!
