Mountain View Elementary School Principal JoAnne Bindell announced to the Humboldt Unified School District Governing Board that she received a package in the mail earlier in the day on Aug. 19 and found a large plaque from the Office of the Governor Arizona.

It thanked the students and staff for their participation in the Arizona Weights and Measures Week in March.

The plaque reads, "Teaching students the importance of retail pricing and the different types of inspections done to ensure that shoppers are getting what they pay for is the first step in teaching the basics of being a good consumer. It also enables students to utilize the math skills they learn in classroom by applying them in a real world environment."

Mountain View fourth-graders visited local grocery stores to learn more about consumer skills this past March.

Arizona Weights and Measures Week is a nationally recognized event that commemorates the 215th anniversary of the signing of the first Weights and Measures law in the United States on March 2, 1799, by President John Adams.
