Hundreds of students to visit City Hall this evening
About 400 third grade students will meet Mayor Bob Stephens and members of City Council city Staff at a special event today beginning at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
“The Treasures of the City,” a treasure hunt for knowledge about city government, is part of the Springfield Public Schools’ Partners in Education (PIE) program, and is a 23-year tradition.
The students have been studying local municipal government for the past several weeks as a part of their regular social studies curriculum. Lessons learned in the classroom will be complemented by the student field trip with their families, which includes a look at police and fire vehicles and a tour of Busch Municipal Building and Historic City Hall.
When students arrive, they are provided a treasure map and clues that will lead them around Government Plaza, until they discover the treasure in City Council Chambers.Hundreds of students to visit City Hall Thursday evening
