PRIDE IN PACIFICA
Pacifica High School administrators, civics teachers, and students were thrilled to provide a Mariner’s welcome to Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye last week for a special ceremony to celebrate the school earning the prestigious Civic Learning Award of Excellence.
Before the ceremony began, Pacifica students hosted a Civics Showcase to highlight their work in areas like political action, non-profit community service, poll working, and close reading which allows students to separate facts from fake news.
During the ceremony, local leaders congratulated Pacifica High School on this exceptional accomplishment. Pacifica High School senior Megan McCall, who won the American Soapbox Challenge earlier this year, gave inspiring remarks about the importance of civic education and the difference it has made in her life.
