Missions in Progress at Gullett

To all you agents out there – here’s an update on what some of the courageous leaders at Gullett are working on:

The team focusing on mass shootings  put up posters around their school. They’ve also continued writing petitions and letters to the government asking for stricter gun control.

The team focusing on animal cruelty made posters, and they are working on a fundraiser for local shelters.
The team who wants to stop terrorism is focusing on first learning more about the issues related to the problem before diving into action!
The Environment team organized with other students to pick up trash during the last 5 minutes of recess. This was successful for a little while, but they lost steam, especially after the winter break. They also recognized that while they had been picking up trash, others were still littering so it didn’t feel like they were making a huge difference. They decided to make posters encouraging people to stop littering, and spreading the message to others to help pick up trash during the last 5 minutes of recess.   Great evaluation of your success and trying again, Team Environment!

Welcome, Brentwood Agents!

Welcome, Agents of Brentwood Elementary!

In Agent Thomas’ class, the agents have decided to help stop pollution by making signs and announcements to spread their message; another group is excited to help end world hunger through a food drive.

In Agent Shirey’s class, one group of agents wants to help stop animal abuse by starting a boycott of companies who do product testing on animals; they plan to research what companies do this first, and then make posters and signs to spread the word of the boycott.  Another group wants to speak out against the racism and intolerance they’ve identified in Donald Trump’s public statements.   They’ll begin by pledging to make their own school welcome to everyone as part of the No Place for Hate wall and presentation, and will make posters and signs as well.

In Agent Olivares’ class, the agents want to do a fundraiser to help end poverty.  They plan to research organizations who help with this cause, and are hoping to find adult sponsors and corporate sponsors to help them.  Another group also wants to speak out against the racism and intolerance they’ve identified in Donald Trump’s campaign, and they started working on posters and signs.

Welcome, Gullett Agents!

Welcome to the CIA, Agents!  Good luck on your missions!

In Agent Wilson’s class:

The Homeless Pets team plans to get the word out about how to be a responsible pet owner. They are making posters, writing speeches for the local news, and designing a wall calendar.
The Poaching team is forming an in-school club that intends to partner with local businesses to promote ethical treatment of animals.

In Agent DeAtly’s class:

The Cancer Team is organizing a Cancer Awareness assembly where students can speak.  They will also be putting together a care package for young patients at Dell Children’s Hospital.
The Animal Abuse team is writing speeches to share with their school about ways to treat animals with respect.

In Agent Child’s class:

The Destroying Land and Nature/ Construction group is planning to start a club to pick up trash at their school. At recess, they’re given a 5 minute warning before recess is over, so they had the idea to use their 5 minute warning to pick up trash around the playground.
The Terrorism group talked a lot about what’s currently going on in the world, how terrorism takes different forms, and how it relates to racism and war. The students plan on doing more research, and also will write letters to Congress encouraging them to accept Syrian refugees.

 

In Agent Valentino’s class:

The Animal Cruelty team would like shelters to do more trainings for pet owners to be responsible, and also to better ensure the health of the animals while they are in the shelter. They plan on making a petition and writing letters to local shelters, and also making posters to put in shelters about how to be a responsible pet owner.
The Mass Shootings group talked about doing a march to the Capitol, asking for more gun control. They plan on making signs and a petition for their march.
