    I’m going to do it!

    Do what?

    Run for student council.

    Good for you!

    What does the student council do?

    They solve problems together and try to make the school a better place.

    Hmmm, sounds like family council.

    Sort of. But don’t try running for the position of Dad. At least not yet.

    So, Mandy, what’s next?

    I need a slogan!

    How about, “Mandy is dandy, she’ll give you free candy.” I’d vote for that!

    Just kidding.

    Hmmm. Posters. Talking to lots of people.

    It sounds a little scary. But I think I really want to do it!

    I’ll help put up posters.

    I’ll pass out candy!
