The Durfee Elementary Student Council was awarded a “Certificate of Participation” by El Monte Mayor, Andre Quintero, during the April 8th City Council meeting. They were also awarded a” Certificate of Participation” by The El Monte Kiwanis Club who sponsored the day. The Kiwanis Club President, Teresa Thomas, awarded each student a certificate and acknowledged students by stating, “These are great students and they did a Great Job!” On March 27th the Durfee students were invited to the City of El Monte City Hall which was also the 50th Annual City Government Day. The students met with City Council members and learned how an actual City Council meeting works. They also had a chance to see firsthand how the City of El Monte functions on a day-to-day basis, as each student was assigned a city employee to shadow and learn more about their departments and responsibilities. Their visit ended with a tour of the Police Station and a pizza lunch at Shakey’s with city staff.
