‘We the People’ Community Night
January 3 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PMFree
A ‘We the People’ Community Night and Dress Rehearsal will be held Thursday, January 3 at 6 p.m. in the Stevensville High School Choir Room. Nineteen days after this dress rehearsal the We the People class will be heading to Helena to compete in the We the People State Competition. The dress rehearsal will help each unit become more prepared for the competition. Parents, Stevensville School District staff and Stevensville community members are all welcome to attend.
This is the second year that the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution has been integrated into the AP Government and Politics course. We the People gives students the opportunity to learn more about the history of America and the Constitution. Wes Wells, the teacher of AP Government, wanted to include this program because it was a challenging competition that would give an opportunity to Stevensville High School students to compete academically against other students from around Montana. Out of all the schools in the Bitterroot Valley, Stevensville is the only school that offers this program. Last year’s We the People participants placed fifth in the State Competition. The school that takes first at this competition gets the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. to represent Montana for the national competition.
