Juniors have been hard at work studying for their “We The People” Competition coming up tomorrow, February 2. Students need to be at the school at 7:00 a.m. so they can get to the competition on time. Professional dress is required! Bring a sack lunch as lunch will not be provided.
This is the first year MTCHS has participated in We the People, and teachers have made it part of the American Government and English courses. The We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution Program promotes civic competence and responsibility among the nation’s upper elementary and secondary students. The We the People printed textbooks and Enhanced Ebooks interactive strategies, relevant content and the simulated congressional hearing make teaching and learning exciting for both students and teachers. The program enjoys active support from state bar associations and foundations and other educational, professional, business, and community organizations across the nation. Since its inception in 1987, more than 28 million students and 75,000 educators have participated in the We the People Program.
