Third Graders Visit City Hall

In November, Pleasant Hill Mayor Michael Harris hosted third-graders from Gregory Gardens and Valhalla Elementary Schools at City Hall. The students enjoyed their tour and learned interesting facts about this unique building. They also participated in Mock City Council meetings where they discussed issues important to third-graders, such as “Should Gregory Gardens students be allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school on Halloween?” and “Should Valhalla Elementary School require uniforms?"
Everyone in the audience agreed with Mayor Harris that the Council and all the presenters did a terrific job. Mayor Harris commented that he saw many future leaders in these third-graders. By the way, there will be no Halloween costumes at Gregory Gardens because “they might get dirty or torn” and no uniforms at Valhalla because “we might not be able to recognize our friends in the schoolyard.”
