FLORENCE, Ariz. (May 21, 2019) – Thirty-one sixth grade students at City of Maricopa’s Legacy Traditional School accompanied six parents and a teacher to the Arizona Science Center. County Attorney Kent Volkmer joined the students as they went through the exhibits. Students in Mrs. Arney’s class were awarded the trip after their very talented classmate Angela Lawson won Pinal County Attorney’s Office Anti-Drug Poster Contest.
“We enjoyed our day of learning at the Science Center. It was a great ending to a wonderful year with students. We have laughed, learned, cried and become a family,” Mrs. Arney said.
Lawson said her favorite section was the Forces of Nature exhibit at the science center. Mrs. Arney said she enjoyed the Mummies Exhibit since her class learns about Ancient Egypt and reads the book The Golden Goblet. However, other students said they enjoyed the virtual reality section, and an exhibit where students measure their brain activity called Mind Ball.
Sixth grade students in Pinal County were given a month to create a poster with an anti-drug theme. The students had one month to create a design that educates and engages Pinal’s youth on the importance of being drug-free.
