What’s in this edition?
I learned a new word this month – municipality. That is a city, town or village that was established under the governing state guidelines. Many cities (municipalities) are holding elections this month. That means people are running for mayor and city council positions. It’s important for citizens to vote in the elections because the decisions that local leaders make have a big impact on the community and the people who live there.
Did you know that there is an organization that counts how many people live in a community? It is called the Census Bureau. The information collected by the Census Bureau is used for all kinds
of things including trying to understand the way the population of the country is growing and
changing. I got to talk to Lynda Laughlin this month.She is a demo grapher at the Census Bureau. You can read about her cool job in the “What’s It Like to Be…” section.
If you like dancing you will enjoy the “Cultural Connections” section. It’s all about Flamenco dancing. Ask a responsible grown up to help you find videos of it online. It is fun to watch!
