24 Oct Senator Wyden’s Office Honors CSCS
Grace Neal from Senator Ron Wyden’s office visited Southwest Charter School during this morning’s All School Meeting. She came to present Sarah Anderson, Will Britton and Southwest Charter School with a certificate indicating that Sarah’s and Will’s recent visit to Wyden’s Washington, DC office was entered into the Congressional Record. Sarah and Will traveled to Washington, DC in September at the request of the Classroom Law Project, which sponsors Project Citizen. Sarah and Will visited both Senator Wyden and Representative Blumenauer’s offices while there to share about the 8th Grader’s 1st Prize winning project, “Second Hand Smoke is Not a Joke,” a project that proposed a policy-based solution to second-hand smoke in public parks. Way to go 8th graders!
