Second Graders Get College Ready

College_Our 2nd grade students are already preparing for college! In the classroom, they have been working in six different college teams representing Marquette, Gonzaga, Santa Clara, Notre Dame, Providence, and Georgetown. The teams collaborate in their classroom learning centers and workshops.

In Social Studies classes, students have learned about the regions of the United States that each college is located in. In Math, they have used their measurement skills to create new buildings for their campuses. They have even written letters to their college's admissions departments, and inquired about good habits they can start today to prepare for college in the future. In return, they have received encouraging letters, maps, information books, and generous gifts from the universities. We are proud of our scholars as they prepare for their future.
