VFES Fifth Grade Candy Election
The fifth grade classes at Vienna-Finley Elementary recently studied the election process by holding a school-wide candy election. Mrs. Cazares’ class represented the Chocolate Party, and Mrs. Clancy’s class represented the Fruity Party. Each class held primary elections and voted on the candy to represent their party for the candy election. Hershey’s came out on top for the Chocolate Party and Fun Dip won for the Fruity Party.
Both classes worked hard all week on campaigning for their candy candidate. They created campaign posters to hang throughout the school, recorded campaign ads and commercials for all of the students in the school to view, wrote speeches and presented them to each class in the school, and even held a debate that was broadcasted live via the Vienna-Finley Facebook page. Voting took place at the end of the week and every student and staff member in the building was eligible to vote during lunch times.
At the end of the day, votes were tallied and Mrs. Barrett announced that Fun Dip had won. Students in Mrs. Clancy’s class who were part of the Fun Dip campaign team delivered Fun Dip packets to every student in the school to celebrate Fun Dip winning the election.
