MayorCrossroads Academy - Quality Hill students were thrilled to host Kansas City Mayor Sly James for a visit to the school.

Mayor James visited kindergarten and first grade classes, reading a book about Kansas City, answering thoughtful questions from the scholars and dancing to a song.

CAQH students asked the Mayor many great questions including “So, what do you do when you get home?” and “What are you doing with all of the taxes you get?”

Kindergarten has been learning about roles and responsibilities so ahead of the visit they brainstormed the many roles and responsibilities of a Mayor.

First grade took Mayor James’ visit as an opportunity to further their study on peacemaking. The students asked Mayor James what he thinks it means to be a peacemaker.

Mayor James answered by teaching the scholars how to be a problem-solver. He said that peacemakers can’t take a side -- you have to talk to both sides in order to be a peacemaker. He also explained that being peaceful makes us feel full.

We’re thankful for Mayor James’ investment in our scholars as they learn to be peacemakers and take responsibility in their community and in the world.
