The November Election!

Written by Seth Pozzi, Head of School on .

This year, our school decided to participate in Election Day in a new and special way. Elementary students voted on this year’s yearbook theme from the options: Obscura, Smiley and Wrigley.

We presented the children with a choice that is, in some ways, similar to the one parents faced today when going to the polls. We asked students to think about which theme best represents our school community’s values and what matters most to each individual student. We framed their choices in the following way.

THE CANDIDATES

Smiley: Represents bucket filling

We asked the students if bucket filling and kindness represents the most important value in our community. If so, they might decide to vote for Smiley.

Wrigley: Represents nature and the environment

We asked the students if our beautiful campus and the environment represent the most important values in our community. If so, they might decide to vote for Wrigley.

Obscura: Represents any other issue they find personally important

We asked the students if there is some other issue (besides bucket filling or the environment) that represents the most important value in our community. If so, they might decide to vote for Obscura.

 

The time is now 3:47PM on November 6, 2018. All Ballots have been counted by our WHPS poll workers. But, you will have to stay tuned for Morning Assembly on November 7 for the results. We can say, there was a landslide victory to the winner. Was it Obscura, Wrigley or Smiley? Find out tomorrow!
