Today the fifth grade classes went on a field trip to the Capitol in Salt Lake City. They were able to watch sessions in the Senate and House of Representatives to learn more about the legislative process. Later in the afternoon they were able to meet with Senator Hinkins and Representative Thurston, who talked with them about their jobs and answered questions.
