College Week

Fannin Families:   
On the week of  January 23-27th, we will be celebrating “College Week” at Fannin.  Each day, students will be learning about different universities and discussing future goals.  College readiness begins in elementary school. We also need your help.  Please take time at home to have conversations with your child about the importance of higher learning.  Participate in discussions with your child about college options and steps for achieving future career plans.  Additionally, please have your child wear his/her favorite college shirt on Wednesday (January 25th) and a hat/cap with a college logo on Friday (January 29th).                     
Thank you!
