Garrett Primary

College Week

Week of April27th-May 1st

College and Career Week is next week, we will spend the next week talking to our students about the importance of going to college. Each class will have their door decorated with the chosen college or university. Please take time to research the university or college that you selected. We have to talk about the benefits of going to college, how to start preparing for it, and some of the career choices that require college educations. Our students deserve to have big dreams and to know about the paths to achieve those dreams. Plus, when we teach them that college is necessary, expected, and important, we are also telling our students that we have high expectations for them because we believe in them!

College is the ticket to your future-We will be exploring career readiness with all students. Please encourage them to participate in our College Spirit Week
