Junior Beavers Across the CountryPosted April 27th, 2010 by staff
On Friday’s at Stevens Elementary School in Aberdeen, Washington you’ll find a class full of busy beavers – OSU Beaver Fans, that is. Natalie Duffy’s second graders “adopted” Oregon State University as part of the “No Excuses University” program that encourages a college-going culture even at a young age. Decorated with orange-and-black goodies provided by the Office of Precollege Programs and decked out in homemade OSU shirts, the students learn about college attendance and future careers. The students (in OSU garb) were recently featured on their school district’s website as part of a video conferencing activity with a school in Texas.
Other classrooms adopted by Precollege Programs include:
- Ms. Burgess’ 4th Grade Class in Elk Grove, CA
- Ms. Geyer’s 3rd Grade Class in Cielo Vista, CA
- Ms. McAllister’s 2nd Grade Class in Everett, WA
- Ms. Woodard’s 6th Grade Class in Phoenix, AZ
Look to see more news from our other Junior Beavers soon!
