On May 8th, with the direction of Asst. Principal Elliot Lepert, Johnson Elementary re-named the front lounge area of the school “” and had a ribbon-cutting ceremony to motivate 4th and 5th graders to make lofty goals for their future. The ceremony included a college trivia contest with college banners for prizes. Next, one of our own, Cipriana Fernandez, was recognized for her path to college that began right here at Johnson Elementary. Cipriana spoke to students about how she was able to get to college and gave students advice on how they can do it, too. “Don’t be afraid to speak up!” she told a wide-eyed group of 4th and 5th graders. Cipriana’s mother, Dorene Fernandez was also recognized for her support she gave Cipriana in getting to college. The event culminated with students making and posting a goal for their plans to attend college or to work hard for a successful career.
Look for the following features when you come visit “College and Career Hall:” a beautiful sign created by Ms. Farmer with help from 5th graders Armando Gomez and Leslie Galvez , Cipriana Fernandez’s “path to college” in the display case created by Mr. Medina, and a variety of college texts for students to peruse donated by teachers. Teachers are invited to bring their classes to “College and Career Hall.” The large windows and tables will give students the feel of a college classroom. Students may get the feeling of what its like at college and understand that—yes, they can do it! “College and Career Hall” is a place, but also a symbol that shows that we believe in our students. Every Johnson student has the capacity to further their education, not just to high school graduation, but to college and beyond. We want our students to enjoy a life working in a future career that brings them joy, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose. Come one, come all to “College and Career Hall.”
Our kids at Johnson Elementary had an exciting Monday when they were surprised by WWE superstars Jimmy and Jey Uso! The wrestlers visited the school as part of the WWE and First Book’s We Give Books program, which aims to demonstrate the importance of reading early and often. The Uso brothers read aloud to the kids, and each student received a book autographed by the Uso brothers and their own WWE belt.
