It's time for March Madness in the form of College Week here at Harris Intermediate. Next week each of our advisory classes will get an "acceptance letter" saying they have been accepted into a college. These colleges will compete against each other through the March Madness brackets. The winning team will get Pie Dump donuts as a prize (YUM).
The students will learn more about their college as well as what going to college is all about. Each day our students will learn about college vocabulary, what is considered college, how to apply for college, how to get financial aid, and the benefits of going to college.
Students will learn that college can consist of one, two, four or more years of post secondary education to get them on their career path. We will have representatives come from several of the local colleges as well as the military to answer any questions our students may have.
We will have dress up days and fun activities during lunch that students can participate in to help them learn more.
So get excited, hold on to your hats (and college gear) and lets have a great time!
