As part of a Social Studies assignment for Mr. Lisker’s class, our 8th graders were asked to do research and write a letter to a Congressman or President Obama about concerns they might have about different issues. A number of students wrote to Congressman Jared Huffman regarding their concerns over the Dakota Access Pipeline and other issues. He was so impressed with their letters that he decided to come to our school and respond to those questions personally!
Congressman Huffman made sure that our students understood that their voices mattered.
Thank you, Congressman Huffman!
