Celebrate College Signing Day 2016

admin | Thursday, April 21, 2016

As part of her #ReachHigher Initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama is once again sponsoring #CollegeSigningDay on Tuesday, April 26.

College Signing Day is a chance to celebrate students for making a commitment to higher education. Hosted by schools, organizations, community leaders and influencers, Signing Day is a chance to rally around local students and show them your support. The movement is a way for educators, counselors and parents to encourage those heading to college, but also a way for students to inspire and encourage others, too.

Some ideas for celebrating College Signing Day in your middle school:

  • Encourage all educators and staff to wear college gear and, more importantly, talk with students about your college experience – where did you go, what did you study, what choices did you make (and why)?
  • Record students making a commitment to go to college. Post on social media. Use #CollegeSigningDay and #CCClubs hashtags.
  • Celebrate alumni who have gone on to college and succeeded. Invite them back to talk with you students.
  • Visit a local college…many middle grade students have never set foot on a campus.

To continue the momentum, sign-up for Career & College Clubs for the 2016-2017!
