News Blog Category - News We are focusing on college readiness — yes, even at elementary school! College GO! Week is a great time to put extra focus on this important topic.

This week we will have special guests, special competitions, and of course dress-up days!

Here are the dress-up day themes for the week of Sept. 24:
  • Monday: Hat Day
  • Tuesday: Giant Dreams Day (career day)
  • Wednesday: Wear Red for College Readiness
  • Thursday: Your Giant Future Starts Here (purple & gold day)
  • Friday: College Spirit Day (wear spirit wear or college colors)

>> Do you talk about college in your family? It's an important conversation to have — and to start early. If college seems out of reach, talk to our staff about ways that your student can start the path to college NOW. Your student can accomplish GIANT things!

And if you have a high school senior in your family, or know one, let them know that several colleges have FREE applications this week! It's a great time to take this important step toward life after high school! (Their guidance counselor will have more information.)
