SEVENTH GRADERS TESTIFY FOR THE CONSTITUTION
Canterbury Middle School’s entire seventh grade participated in a We the People Hearing at the Allen County Court House November 11. We The People is a Signature Program that begins in Grade 5 and then continues in Grade 7. This social studies program is an intensive study of the United States Constitution. In honor of those who have served our great nation, the students discussed the Constitution and its values. The hearings were open to the public. Four veterans were part of the panel of “hearing” judges. The panel also included members of the community. Canterbury parent and board member Byron Lamm was one of the judges. "The seventh grade students were amazing. Great presentations and impressive answers to difficult Constitutional questions. Bravo to the students and their teachers, Mrs. Bernstein and Mrs. Wallace," he said. Parent volunteer Cathy Diamente echoed his sentiments, "Very thoughtful and thought filled presentations. It was a privilege to help judge."
