Help me give my students a visit from WSU's very own Butch T. Cougar!
I am blessed with 18 first grade students in my classroom who are eager to learn and explore the world around them. However, my students come from many different backgrounds, which sometimes makes it difficult for students to be exposed to grade-level content at home. Students come from homes that are unable to provide basic supplies, not to mention school supplies. They are made up from a diverse set of backgrounds and include English language learners, special education students, and those receiving free or reduced-price lunches. Some of my students may even experience being homeless during the school year. Homelessness is an experience that individual people have, rather than a label. It is my goal as their teacher to provide them with basic necessities.
68% of our students receive free or reduced-price meals.
My students are very grateful for your support!
Each classroom at our school is a designated college, which exposes students to different colleges and encourages the idea of being college-bound. My classroom is the Washington State University Cougars. Go Cougs! Giving my students a visit from Butch the Cougar will benefit them in many different ways. For example, the visit will help create a real-life connection with our adopted classroom theme of WSU. The visit will also encourage students to see college as a possibility.
We believe in college readiness for all!
Every Monday, our school participates in "College Wear Monday" where teachers and students are encouraged to wear their college apparel. We also have school-wide morning announcements where each classroom chants their specific college's fight song/chant. Our college-going culture shows our students that we believe in them and that we know they have bright futures ahead of them. We see college as a possibility for every one of our students regardless of their family's income or background, and we want them to see college as a part of their future, too. Every student deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college if they choose to attend.
