It's never too early to instill aspirations of higher education. I have found that when students share a pennant from the college or university attended by a parent or family member, important conversations are started in the classroom, from "I want to go to ____ for college" to "Did you see that college basketball game?" Even the latter lets us talk about the fact that UCLA is a school, and that some of the students represent that school as part of the basketball team. Please consider donating a pennant from a college or university attended by parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles... We have a good collection started on the walls of Room 8. To avoid spending money on a duplicate, feel free to check with me before you purchase - we can still have your child point out the pennant and share who went there, what they studied, what they do now, etc. Thank you!
