The Physical Education Department Goes to UCLA
On Saturday, November 2nd, the Elementary Physical Education Department and Del Norte Elementary School partnered up to attend the "I'm Going to College" event. Lead teacher Carri Fredericks along with her teaching assistants, Jason Hickman, Jeanne Morales, and Daryl Durston spent the day with 55 Del Norte students and chaperones at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for a college fair and football game.
The event provided a great opportunity to expose our students to university life, as well as a reminder that it's never too early to begin thinking about college. Students had the opportunity to speak with academic counselors, get autographs from UCLA student-athletes and speak with current UCLA students. Other college fair activities included carnival games, giveaway items and face painting.
After getting into the UCLA spirit we headed into the stadium to cheer on the Bruins as they defeated Colorado 45-23.
