First-Graders Meet the Mayor

First-grade students at Cherry Lane School welcomed Mayor Peter Cavallaro to the school library to speak about the duties and responsibilities of his position as mayor of the Village of Westbury. In addition, the children asked questions about how a law is passed, how decisions are made when citizens hold differing opinions and how they can be good citizens. This was a meaningful culmination to the social studies unit on government and citizenship and aligned with the first-grade concert theme, “Let’s all get aboard the ‘Citizenship!’”

Mayor Cavallaro is pictured with representatives of every first-grade class, along with his wife, Diane, who is a teacher’s aide at Cherry Lane.
