Culture4Caring: Building Excitement in Elementary and Intermediate Schools
Culture 4 Caring is an amazing organization set on making the learning environment more enjoyable from the first day of kindergarten all the way to grabbing the diploma. Through our actions, we are seeking to achieve unity amongst all of the schools in our district. It is going to greatly impact the interaction between the feeder schools and the high schools which will help immensely in fostering an environment children are excited to be a part of. By bringing older students to the feeder school, we will get the students excited about their journey to the diploma, and by getting the younger students excited about being at school, they will seek to make the school environment better in years to come.
As a young student who is unenthusiastic about having to go to school everyday, Culture 4 Caring is going shine a light on how amazing going to school truly is. When children are young, they are impressionable. While this can be an amazing tool for shaping young minds, it can also be devastating if a student is not shown the right view of the school. If they are surrounded by people who talk down to them at school and make it seem like a chore, they are significantly less likely to enjoy going to school. However, if you place an enthusiastic teenager in front of them, their view could be shifted. When you are younger you see the high-schoolers and you think they are the coolest people you have seen; they get idolized by younger children. So by placing a figure that’s not an adult in front of them who is excited about school, we will be able to excite the students about learning. Through Culture 4 Caring, we are going to place those role models in front of the elementary and middle school and try to entice the students to enjoy school more.
By implementing a Culture 4 Caring club in the younger schools, we are also showing the younger students that they have a voice in what’s going on in their schools. It allows the students to take ownership of their learning and the environment they are learning in. This will manifest in new leadership skills in the students. These newfound leadership skills will lead to new clubs, like Culture 4 Caring, that are seeking to make the school environment more enjoyable.
By giving younger students a person to look up to as an example of what they could become, the next generation of student leaders will begin to blossom and make our learning environment flourish. With the help of Culture 4 Caring, the attitude towards our schools will be greatly improved and will continue to be improved upon.
