I would like to cordially invite you to be a presenter during K2C on Tuesday, May 6th
As many of you know, UAS hosts the annual I’m Going to College (IGTC) event in the spring, which is now Kids2College (K2C). The purpose of K2C is to invite local 5th graders to campus and experience what it means to be a college student for a day – with the ultimate goal of fostering the goal for the kids to go on to finish high school and on to postseason education and training.
Previously we have had this event hosted on two days and this year we are hosting the vent only on one day with half as many students from previous years. The format for K2C will be students arrive in the morning, attend a welcome session and then are broken out into 10 groups of approximately 20 students each (each group will have 3 chaperones). The sessions are scheduled for 30 minutes and are structured to give students the opportunity to experience a college class, with age-appropriate hands-on activities. Each group will attend four different classes, have a lunch, and we will wrap up the day with an awards ceremony.
The level of participation depends on how much time you can volunteer, whether it is for just one 30 minute session, or for all four sessions. All levels of participation are much appreciated! Participating in K2C is a great way to add to your faculty service, get some cool UAS logo paraphernalia and lunch will be provided! If you think that any of your star students might be good at leading a session, they are more than welcome to participate as well.
Please let me know if you are interested in participating no later than February 28th as I will be leaving for maternity leave and need to finalize this event before I am gone.
Thank you so much all that you do for UAS!
