September 21 - 25 was College Go! Week in the state of Indiana! During that week, I went into every class at Fayette Central and Maplewood to give every student a LearnMore magazine as well as to discuss what college is and why it's important to go to college!
There were two contests happening at each school. One was for the kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classes and the other was for the third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and sixth grade classes. Also, you should know, the theme this year was Scooby Doo!
Kindergarten, First, & Second Grade Contest
The students in K, 1, and 2 had to help Scooby Doo figure out what he needed to bring to college! So they talked about the list of items as a class and decided as a class if that item was something that he needed to bring with him or leave at home. The class that got all of the items that Scooby needed to bring on his backpack page won Scooby Snacks for the whole class!
There were several classes that got all of the items that Scooby needed to take to college on his backpack, so I had to break the tie with a random draw! The winners of the random draw and of the Scooby Snack Treat for the K-2 contest were . . .

Miss Toney's 2nd grade class at Maplewood!
Third, Fourth, Fifth, & Sixth Grade Contest
The students in 3, 4, 5, and 6 had a little bigger of a challenge. They were asked to solve a mystery! Scooby Doo visited 5 colleges around the state of Indiana and the students had to use the clues provided to their class to figure out which colleges he visited as well as do some research about each college. Then they had to figure out which college he chose to attend in the end.
There were several classes that followed the clues and ended up figuring out that Scooby Doo chose to attend Butler University! There were also quite a few classes at both schools that got the correct information about each college, so I had to do another tie-breaker by random draw! This time, the winners of the Scooby Snacks were . . .
