Sutton Elementary celebrated College Colors Day, a day to recognize the importance of a college educa- tion. Everyone at the school was encouraged to wear the colors of their favorite college or universi . Educators decorated pennants of the schools from which they gradu- ated. The pennants were displayed in the cafeteria and in the hall in front of the media center. Having the pennants in a visible location promoted conversations between teachers and students about the possibilities and op- portunities of higher education. To tie college readiness into the curriculum, 5th grade Project SOAR students researched the colleges and universities that they were interested in attending and determined the total cost of a four-year education at that school. We are working to prepare our students for their bright futures! Students and staff of K.B. Sutton represented their favorite colleges with enthusi- asm before the start of the school day. K.B.
