Third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School spent the week of Oct. 9 campaigning to be a part of the school’s student government club.

To become part of the club, students were first elected class representatives by their classmates. Those running for the position had to give speeches to their individual classes for election. Once elected into the club by their peers, students then campaigned for several administrative positions, including president, vice president, treasurer and reporter.  

After a week of campaigning and making posters touting their skills, students delivered speeches to their respective grade levels on Oct. 13, who then voted to elect the 2017-2018 class officers.
