College & Career Week

College & Career Week

College and Career Week was a lot of fun with great college trivia and counselor bulletin board trivia.  On the morning announcements, trivia about area colleges were given and students put in their guess for a winners announced at the end of each day.  Also, students were given the chance to match as many teachers with correct colleges attended.  Our overall winner was Mason Sutton in Mrs. Kirtley’s 4th grade class with 21 correct!  He won a “couch pouch”!  Congrats to Mason and all others who worked hard on the bulletin board–they came with away with small prizes too.  To end the week, we wore our favorite college apparel.  Below are pictures of students working on the bulletin board.
