It’s a busy month! This week is not only American Education Week (click here) but it is also Generation Texas Week. This is a time when students in Texas think about their future. Education doesn’t stop after high school. It can continue through college, vocational schools, military training or even on-the-job training.
One of the concerns many families and students have is how to pay for college. Aldine ISD has been offering informative sessions this fall semester (click here). During the week of Nov. 12, the Guidance and Counseling Department will present three College Application and Financial Aid Nights.
During Generation TX Week students and staff will celebrate with a specific theme each day (All outfits must fit into the school dress code.).
School staff will discuss concepts like goal setting, continuing education past high school and career exploration. Contact your child’s school to learn how staff are celebrating the week and inspiring students to think about their education past high school.
For more information on Generation TX, please go to: gentx.org (click here). This site has information on planning for college, including financial planning.
You can find information at Aldine ISD’s College and Career Readiness site (click here). This site has links to information for college exploration and financial aid.
Teachers, principals and guidance counselors play roles in guiding students. Yet, parents play a key part as well. Their attitudes about school and college have a lasting impact on children. It doesn’t matter whether parents went to college themselves or not. The fact remains that parents have a great influence in shaping their children’s attitude toward school. Be involved and talk about the future with your child. Find out what his or her aspirations are. Visit with your child’s teacher or counselor and see how you can help your child reach his or her dreams.
Every educator and parent wants children to grow up and have successful careers. A student may desire to improve things for his or her family or simply have a better, brighter future. These are some of the reasons to make higher education a goal.
