Alumni Day, January 13, 2016

15 alumni stopped by to do talks from 1st to 9th period on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 about their experiences in post secondary institutions. There were big hugs and smiles throughout the day. The most compelling moments, having the panel of college students inform present McKee students about the knowledge they gained from McKee; the influence of AVID on their organizational skills; the competencies they have acquired; academic, fiscal, social and emotional accountability; the growth mindset and the "real world."

I am beaming. The energy and enthusiasm pulsed through the school with alumni hugging teachers and assistant principals, students that they knew.  

Acquaintances and strangers asked the college students after the panel more questions or comments in regards to the type of environment at the post secondary institution that the student was interested in attending.

It was such a neat experience. A 15 out of 10 on the Way Cool meter.

 I have to be mindful of  branding.  I have to get a banner that goes above the top part of the white board or SMARTboard in each classroom with the McKee logo.
