HARTFORD – St. Rose’s fourth-grade students from Ms. Davenport’s class visited the State Capitol on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, and were welcomed by State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-Newtown) in the House Chamber.
“The annual visit by St. Rose’s fourth-grade is one I look forward to all year,” beamed Bolinsky. “At this age, they’re already very civically aware, curious and full of great questions. With the help of wonderful teachers like Paula Davenport, we talked about how laws are made and the role of a State Representative as their voice, their parents’ voice and their community’s advocate in matters of the state. Their enthusiasm always makes this one of my favorite days of the year!”
The students also had the opportunity to meet Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, a friend of Rep Bolinsky’s, and to view the Senate Chambers, learn the Capitol’s history, explore the Legislative Office Building, enjoy lunch on the Capitol lawn and visit the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch in Bushnell Park.
