Last week was College Awareness Week at Salk Middle School! It was a great week with students, faculty, and staff participating in a variety of college themed activities! Each day students were exposed to college facts during the morning announcements.
On Tuesday, March 5, Counselors set up tables outside the cafeteria. Students had the opportunity to explore and examine college materials and take part in the "Name the Mascot" game.
Wednesday, March 6, was our 1st Annual Door Decorating Contest. Teachers, staff, and students created college themed door decorations to show off their creativity and school spirit.
On Thursday, March 7, Counselors visited 8th grade Foreign Language classes to share their own college experiences and have open discussions with students about college.
We wrapped up the week with a viewing of the College Awareness Video created by Ms. Kourkoumelis and Ms. Levine and featuring Salk faculty and staff. Check out the video on the Salk Homepage! Overall it was a fun and informative week!
