Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick visits Franconia Elementary
Date Created:August 25, 2016
Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick came to visit my classroom after receiving letters from my students. The Congressman's visit meant a lot to us. Congressman Fitzpatrick talked with the students. He let them know that their writing matters, and writing to express your opinion is something that should be done in a democracy. He let them know they can have a voice in government, and writing is a way to sound that voice. He explained how bills get written and become laws, and that their writing and opinions can influence the process. He recognized these third graders as writers and thinkers, kids who will vote and make a difference.
