Shuford Elementary held Student Council Elections and Voting “Blended Learning Style”. Student Council leaders, Mischele Glover and Hiley Davis wanted to implement Shuford’s blended learning theme into their student elections. Shuford students campaigned and ran for student council offices. In order to run for student council, students had to be recommended by a previous teacher as well as fill out a lengthy application.
Students running for the office of President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer had to write a speech. Speeches were held in the school cafeteria on Sept. 17th which is also Constitution Day, in front of all students in 2nd grade through 5th grade. Class representatives were nominated by teachers for grades 3 through 5. On Friday, students in 3rd grade through 5th grade came out to the Shuford Polls to vote for the best candidates. Students voted in their own voting booth on a computer. Teachers took the opportunity to discuss the voting rights and responsibilities of citizens during this very exciting week. We are proud of all students who were courageous enough to run for a student council office. Congratulations to the following winners!

Secretary – Ella Presnell
Treasurer – Carson Harris
5th Grade Class Representatives – Sydney Templeton, Angei Hernandez
4th Grade Class Representatives – Drew Fisher, Ella Cecil
