On Friday, October 25th, students at BVMS participated in a Voting & Elections Assembly hosted by the Monterey County Office of Elections. Students were taught about why voting is so important at the national, state, and especially, local level. Students went to the polls and voted on their favorite t-shirt design and color for an upcoming BVMS Bobcat Pride Spirit shirt. After the polls closed, students served as ballot counters, observers, and announcers. In the end, 8th Grader Hayden Henry’s design was chosen to be on a black t-shirt.
