WHAT: Washington Elementary School students will give parents and community members a lesson in colleges and universities during the school’s student-run college fair. Students each adopted a college to research in the fall and will present their findings on large display projects that highlight programs, famous alumni, maps and fun facts about their school of study.
As students and families tour the fair, student presenters will answer questions about the colleges they represent. More than two dozen colleges will be showcased, from Ivy League schools and UC campuses to Cal State schools and the University of Alabama.
WHEN: Thursday, March 28
Session one: 9 to 10:30 a.m.
Session two: 2 to 2:30 p.m.
WHERE: Washington Elementary School
4225 Sanborn Ave.
MORE: Enrollment data, financial aid procedures and school demographics will be included at college stations to help students and families learn more about school options and admission. Washington teachers will announce college trivia questions over a microphone to give students the chance to earn prizes.
Classes will tour the fair throughout the day with college presenters seeking to get students to sign their names to a sheet to express interest in a school. After the tour, all Washington students will complete a symbolic application to the college they found most interesting.
