ROCKFORD (WREX)- Students at a local elementary school got to hear from a special guest, Mayor Tom McNamara.
Mayor McNamara spoke to third graders at Welsh Elementary School. His message focused on what people are doing to improve the community. The event relates to the school’s integrated literacy curriculum to let students learn more about what is going on in their community, and the history of Rockford.
“If I can do anything to help boost their spirits or help let them know that our entire city cares about their education and who they’re becoming. I think that is incumbent and part of my job,” said Mayor McNamara.
Students also got to ask the mayor questions and talk with him one on one.
