Valhalla Third Graders Visit PH City Hall

May 30, 2016 07:33PM, Published by Becky Coburn, Categories: In Print, Education



In May, Pleasant Hill Mayor Sue Noack and Vice-Mayor Michael Harris hosted third graders from Valhalla Elementary School for a tour of City Hall and a mock city council meeting. Student Mayor McKinley Brandow and Councilmembers Michael Borokhov, Roland Johnson, Melanie Limon, and Andy Woo, ably assisted by their staff, heard arguments for and against items critical to Valhalla students from other third graders.

Ms. Kaput's class discussed “Should Valhalla students have homework?” Speaking in favor was Tanner Carle. Speaking against was Keira Carlton. The motion passed 5-0. 

Mr. O’Connell’s class discussed “Should Valhalla students have laptops?” Speaking in favor were Cohen Endsley and Anaya Khan. Speaking against were Josh Northrup and Trent Lanza. The motion failed 3-2.

Ms. Snitselaar’s class discussed “Should Valhalla have a four-day school week?” Speaking in favor was Chase Strand. Speaking against was Maggie Volway. The motion failed 3-2. 

Mr. Thomas's class discussed "Should Valhalla students wear uniforms?” Speaking in favor was Andrew Jiminez. Speaking against was Meredith Hom. The motion failed 5-0.

So, next year at Valhalla, students expect homework and a five-day school week but no laptops or school uniforms. The parents in the audience agreed with Mayor Noack and Vice-Mayor Harris that the council and all the presenters did a terrific job.
