Off to Meet the Mayor!


Students from Samantha Naja’s Kindergarten at East Rock Community & Cultural Magnet School traveled to City Hall on March 2, 2023, and met with Mayor Justin Elicker. Students toured the Mayors office while meeting important members of his staff. Elicker read the book to students There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor, by Wade Bradford. The group then held a vote the room where the board of Alders meets on what they wanted more of; gym, music or art.  Art won by a landslide!
