As adults throughout the nation were going to the polls on Tuesday to decide the race for president, so were the students at Park Avenue Elementary School in Port Chester.
And, as it turns out, the students got it right.
Fifth-grade teacher Kathy Franceschini said that after students from second- to fifth-grade cast their ballots, President Barack Obama came up the winner over Mitt Romney, 260 to 37. And, of course, it turned out that the nation voted to re-elected Obama.
"The students really got a kick out of it," Franceschini said of the balloting in school.
Although the Park Avenue election was fun, Franceschini explained it was true learning experience for students. She said that before the election, students researched the candidates and their positions on key issues.
Franceschini said similar votes have been done before at the school, but this was the first time it involved all the students.
