Presidential election at BRES

Students at Broad River Elementary are learning about the election process by doing one of their own!

Students in 3rd-5th grade listened to speeches and then voted for their favorite candidates for President and Vice President in a primary held last week. This week the finalist were invited to give their speeches during the W-BRES Morning News Show. Students will cast their final vote during the General Election which will be held this Friday.


Nate the Gnat visits St. Peter’s

“Nate the Gnat”, from the Savannah Sand Gnats, recently visited St. Peter’s School encouraging the students to read for enjoyment, through the Savannah Sand Gnats Book Bug Reading Program.  As incentives, goals will be set for the students to reach. As they pass by each “base” a prize will be offered, such as a fantastic bookmark, a calendar of Sand Gnats games, and a Sand Gnats Book Bug pencil.  As the students reach the “home base goal” they will receive a ticket to a Sand Gnats game in Savannah. The students were eager to begin reaching their goals.
