There’s a Politician in the Making at HOLA
Sixth grader Anna Sanchez was recently elected Vice President of Camino Nuevo Charter Academy’s Middle School. She might be soft spoken, but she is determined and focused:
What made you decide to run?
We had a student council at my old school and I thought it would be really cool to be on it, but I wasn’t old enough.
What did you have to do to get elected?
I had to write a one page explanation of my plans and once I made it past that, I had to do a You Tube video and make posters. All the kids in 4th – 7th grade voted.
What kind of plans did you propose?
Free dress Fridays – we wear uniforms, so it would be great to get to wear what we want on Fridays. I also suggested that we hold fundraisers so that we can go on field trips.
You’ve raised money before?
When Bridges formed a team for the United Way HomeWalk, I raised almost $150 for our team.
That’s great, what else do you do at HOLA?
I love all of the clubs. Right now I am in the Life Sail class and it is so much fun learning about boats. I didn’t know anything about boats before and I can’t wait to see if ours floats.
