Dieterich Students Hear from Rep. Niemerg: “State Reps. for a Day”

Dieterich Grade School 4th Grade students hear from Rep. Adam Niemerg on April 10, 2024.

Thank you to Mrs. Worman and Mrs. Koester for having me talk to their 4th Grade classes at Dieterich School today. I explained what I do in the Illinois General Assembly and quizzed them on basic information about our State. I had them pretend to be “State Representatives for a Day” and had them vote on whether they wanted Pizza or Chicken Nuggets for Dinner. Pizza won! They all received an Illinois State Certificate for “making their first vote,” a coloring book with Illinois State symbols, a special State bookmark, and each received their own “Patriotic Voting Hat.” I talked about how I “argue” or “debate” in Springfield for what I feel are the best laws.

If you have a class that would like to learn about their state government, please contact the district office to schedule a time for Rep. Niemerg to visit.
