3rd graders hold mock Senate session with President of the Utah Senate

Local News

KAYSVILLE (ABC4 News) – Eighty third-graders held court Tuesday over two major decisions: Should candy be readily available at all times during school, and should there be a swing-set in the playground?

President of the Senate Stuart Adams instructed the students in nominating and electing a head of the third-grade Senate, then in the process of creating and managing an open bill-file.

After a loud and lengthy debate, their elected peers actually voted down both bills with long-term health, safety, and expense in mind. 

Nathaniel Frost said of the exercise, “I didn’t know that laws took so many steps.”

The exuberant 8-year-olds left the meeting with a more judicious eye for their school amenities.
