On Thursday, October 27th, Chieftain Elementary's fourth grade class visited the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. The students toured the Statehouse and learned about the history of the building, how bills become laws, and the three branches of government. Students were also able to tour an interactive museum where they could vote on a bill about bicycle helmet requirements. The highlight of the day was meeting state representative Ron Hood.
Chieftain Elementary was awarded the Capitol Square Foundation Transportation Grant, funded by Honda of America Mfg., Inc. This covered transportation to and from the Statehouse.
