College Awareness Day
Kindergarten and first grade students participated in Tennessee’s statewide College Awareness Week. Students and staff celebrated by wearing the college logo or college colors of their favorite college/university. In addition, students completed a lesson during their weekly classroom guidance time that exposed them to college-going vocabulary, they completed an “I can go to college” coloring sheet, and watched a special message from Carson Newman University’s Talon the Eagle mascot for the students of RPS. Additionally, students received a Walters State Community College backpack with goodies from local colleges, including WSCC, Carson Newman, and Lincoln Memorial University.
