College Inspiration

Help me give my students inspiration to attend college with college pennants of their very own.

My Students

Our school strives to find the leader in all students. Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. The students in my class strive for excellence. They all inherently care about one another and continually make an effort to improve in all aspects.

We encourage students to uphold our 3 C's: Character, College, and Community.

My students are predominately exposed to colleges through our teachers and school environment. Many do not have the opportunity to visit or learn about colleges outside of the opportunities our school provides.

My Project

My students will each receive a college pennant of their very own to hang in their homes. I plan to award each student a pennant as they culminate from my 6th grade class to 7th grade.

Sometimes all it takes is some tangible motivation to express your belief in a child's future success.

Gifting a college pennant to each of my students will show them that we are invested in their future. Many of my students will be the first generation in their family to attend college and they deserve to know that the adults in their community believe in them.
