Wetherbee 21st CCLC Students Impress in Mock Trial


Fifth and sixth grade students from the Community Day Learning 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) program spent 8 weeks working with the Honorable Judge Newman; lawyers John Brien, Katherine Fennell, and Laura Shadallah; and grade 5 teacher Jodie George to prepare for their mock court case at the Fenton Courthouse in Lawrence.

The trial was attended by parents, friends and staff, many of whom served as jurors. Students learned so much about the court system, trials and had a great opportunity to interact with a local judge and lawyers from the community.

A special thank you to the court house staff who gave their time to work with these students.
