...and the results are in!
This morning, lower school students were given the results from yesterday's Akiba election. Just like in a real election, they got to feel the excitement when they heard their vote won and the disappointment when the results did not go their way. Overall, it was an exciting morning assembly with a lot of cheering and smiles!
Which do you like better? (winner listed first and in bold):

Choose your own Holiday Day or Mitzvah Day for Cheshvan

Basketball, Gymnastics, or Football (this was a tie - Students were then taught that in an election if there is a tie in electoral votes - it is determined by the House of Representatives)
The excitement continues tomorrow as students will be given a special treat for morning snack to show that their vote DOES matter!
