Thousand Oaks Mayor Visits Ascension

On Tuesday, November 7, Ascension Lutheran School was honored to welcome the Mayor of Thousand Oaks, Claudia Bill-De La Peña, to our campus for a special presentation, “Ask the Mayor”. In recognition of Election Day, Mayor Bill-De La Peña, shared information about Thousand Oaks, and answered thoughtfully posed questions from each grade level. It was a great experience for our students, as they gained an understanding of the importance of elections and voting, how decisions are made in the city, and what the Mayor and City Council members do. Ascension is grateful to the City of Thousand Oaks for providing this experience and to Mayor Bill-De La Peña who is truly a shining example of someone who leads, inspires, and serves in her community each day.
