Hooray for College Day

Posted in Leadership, Quality Instruction | 2 Comments »

Sometimes the simple things in life make the biggest impact.  Even though we are an elementary school campus, we want our kids to think about year 13 and the possibilities it will bring.  We believe it is never to early to start that conversation.  So my staff and I decided to dedicate one day a week to wear a college t-shirt.  We were amazed by the conversations and chatter this simple idea created!

What conversations are you having with your students to set the expectation and dream of college one day?

As always, be joyful in your thoughts.

    Each time I evaluate a kiddo, I ask what they want to be when they grow up. The answers are often thoughtful, sometimes funny, and once in a while heartbreaking. I think I will shake up my getting-to-know-you spiel with a question about what kids dream of doing in year 13. That way, I can sow the seeds of continued education and productive citizenship. I’m just sorry I’m not on the Four Peaks campus on Thursdays to join in the jersey fun.

    What an exciting day for us! It was a day filled with “why are you wearing that shirt Ms. Best?”. We talked and will definitely have further discussions about the importance of continual learning. I always tell them when I have to go to a class after school. Student response: “why do you still have to go to school Ms. Best?” Teacher response: “because learning is never finished and I still have a long way to go.”
