With the presidential election on everyone’s mind, we decided to make our own voices heard on a very important topic:

Should Mr. Hixson keep his beard?


Our amazing class volunteer, Mr. Hixson, came up with the idea to have the students decide his fate! We chose leaders from each side of the vote, and they presented their cases. Tommy made the persuasive point that he really likes a white beard. Jaicee and Anna provided support for the nay vote with the opinion that the beard covers his handsome face. After their allotted argument time, it was time to hear what the rest of the citizens of Room 505 thought.

Miguel served as our auditor, to ensure that the votes were handled properly.20160413_091505

The Results Are In!

After the final votes were tallied, the final result was that Mr. Hixson would indeed keep his beard (that is, until summer when it’s too hot)! IMG_20160413_121035Once again, democracy has been an important part of our life in room 505.

How would you have voted? Have you ever cast your vote for something? What did you vote for? Were the results what you wanted?
