Do your kids feel like they are making a difference? Making a difference in school, community, or in life? The Groton High School senior government class is trying to make a difference by getting others to believe that they can too. The government class calls themselves the “Next Generation”. It is part of a government project that will increase voter turn-out in young voters, and stimulate interest in local and national issues.
“Next Generation” would like to invite you and your government class to a non-partisan government cracker-barrel session for students.
Keynote speaker: Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.
The cracker-barrel will also include break-out sessions that will discuss many issues including:
Farm Bill, Foreign Affairs, Drinking Age, Gridlock by Politicians, Gun Control, Electoral College
Date: November 22, 2013
Time: 2:00 P.M.
Location: Groton Area High School Arena
Please contact Scott Thorson, Groton government teacher, on whether you and your class plan to attend the cracker-barrel.
