On Wednesday the students stopped by Rockford City Hall to meet Mayor Larry Morrissey and learn more about American government. The students will also have some fun at the pumpkin patch and apple orchard.

Three school administrators from China also made the trip to Rockford to observe classes and learn more about our education system. Local teachers say they plan to take Rockford students to China next summer.
