We can’t wait to hear how your missions go, Agents of Pioneer Crossing!!

In Agent Bui’s class, the “animal endangerment/extinction team” has a plan to encourage lawmakers to protect animals, and to make posters to raise awareness of how to properly treat animals.The “more recess team” plans to ask the Principal if they can have a fundraiser to get a cover over the playground so they can play outside in inclement weather. They also plan to start a “good behavior challenge” to support and encourage kids who miss recess to earn it back.

In Agent Davis’ class, the “homelessness team” plans to have a fundraiser to raise money to donate to an organization that helps the homeless. They already made posters to raise awareness. The “anti-racism team” plans to stand up for someone when they see racism in action. They also already made posters, encouraging kind treatment of all people, and not judging a person without getting to know them.

Both teams planned on getting their messages to the rest of the school through their Broadcast Club, which reaches the entire school in the mornings, and focuses on issues handpicked by students.
Way to go Agents!

Missions in Progress at Rodriguez

Here’s what the courageous leaders of Rodriguez Elementary have been working on since their Courage in Actin training ended:
A team concerned about the messages in Donald Trump’s speeches started making posters encouraging equal treatment for all people.
The team focused on the treatment of immigrants in detention centers worked on writing letters to Immigration and Customs Enforcement asking for better treatment of everyone in the facilities, and to let people free to stay in this country.
The Natural Disasters team and Hunger/ Homelessness team realized that they had similar goals for the action they had decided on. They were both working toward food and clothing drives to help people affected by all of these things, so they decided to work together toward a food drive.
Way to go, Agents!

Mission Update:
Agent Perez’ class chose the topics of deforestation and pollution during their CIA training. Since both groups have similar goals, they decided to work together to write letters to the government asking for better laws to protect the environment, particularly regarding deforestation and emissions from factories.
In Agent Herbst’s class, Team End Homelessness is working on creating care packages to give to homeless people. Team End Racism is working to create a play that raises awareness of some of the issues they’re concerned about, and how we can work together to solve them.
In Agent Garvey’s class, Team End World Hunger is working to start a food drive at their school. They also learned more about what organizations in the area are working to alleviate hunger, and how they can join those organizations to help. Team End Animal Abuse is working on a video that raises awareness and shows teaches how to be a responsible pet owner. They’re hoping to collaborate with Austin Pets Alive! to see if they can go there to get footage of the animals.
