Hollingworth Elementary in West Covina is about to launch a new College Awareness program across the campus, planting the seed early (even in Kindergarten) that after high school comes college.
Each classroom has chosen a major university from across the country that is their classroom “mascot.”
Principal Miriam Kim and Vice Principal Jason Gass will present to each classroom their college “flags” to display. The entire staff is excited about this program that may sound simple, but in other districts has resulted with powerful results.
Colleges that will be represented are below:
San Diego State
Long Beach St.
Fourth (notice they are all Ivy League – they are a smart team)
