All three kindergarten classes at STEM School Highlands Ranch connected with Colorado Congressman, Joe Neguse.
Congressman Neguse conferenced with us from the United States Capitol. After we all said the Pledge of Allegiance together, Senator Neguse helped teach us the importance of expressing and supporting our own opinions in helping to be a part of the Democratic Republic of the USA.
Our connection to the congressman was his niece, Laila.
Ms. Thatcher explained that the kindergartners were working on writing, especially how to write a convincing letter.
