On June 13, after using their new e-book, We the People, to study the history and the philosophy of the US Constitution, Nicholas Oresko Community School Social Studies students in Mrs. Nancy Jaros's classes culminated their study of the Constitution by making presentations for Mayor Davis, Councilman Sal Gullace, and local attorney, and former Bayonne High School Honor student, Mr. Mike Miceli. These presentations allowed students to demonstrate their historical knowledge as well as their understanding of relevant issues such as freedom of speech. Our Constitutional Scholars did a great job displaying their knowledge and their speaking skills.
This event represented the revival of the Social Studies Department’s long standing tradition of conducting an in-depth study of the US Constitution in Grade 5. After their presentations, each student received a pocket Constitution courtesy of Congressman Albio Sires’s office.
