Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment

Dapper Day at the State Capital

February 14, 2017
The fourth graders of Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment were dressed in their finest as they marched through the doors of the Colorado State Capital Building.
They could hardly control their enthusiasm as they watched representatives from all around the state walk to their meetings. The students politely talked to a representative from San Luis Valley as he got his shoes polished. He discussed how he just passed a bill allowing his residents the opportunity to call their doctors even is they do not have reception.
The students went up and outside on top of the dome, they could see the whole city. it’s amazing to think about all the marble that was used to make this building. the red stone in the walls is a rare stone that is only found in Beulah, Colorado.
The walls of this room have all the presidents of the United States, there is enough room for many more presidents. Maybe one of these students will have their picture on that wall one day.
The students gathered outside the capital and reminisced on their experience. It’s pretty cool to see a historical landmark in action!
Thanks to the Montclair Staff and the State Capital Employees and tour guides for making this field trip a monumental success!
