Welcome, Agents of Shadow Glen!

Welcome to the Courage in Action Agency, newest graduates from Shadow Glen!

In Agent Kimbrell’s class, a team focused on racism is excited to create posters and make announcements with a positive message.  The team focused on bullying promised to befriend one new person a day. They also plan to poster their school with messages of respect and friendship and to spread the hashtag #bullybusters, which is also the proposed name of their after school anti-bullying club.

In Agent Garcia’s class, another team dedicated to the issue of bullying plans to ask the principal if they can use one of their daily morning assemblies to discuss how bullying has affected their lives and talk to the counselor about recruiting students to join their chapter of No Place for Hate.  The team focused on hunger, aka: The Helpful Hunger Hawks, wants to do more research to find out how to volunteer for Caritas and prepare food for hungry people.

We’re looking forward to hearing more about your missions!

Welcome, Agents of Perez Elementary!

What inspiring missions you’ve initiated!  Bravo!
In Agent Linnell’s class:
The Bullying Team has started a petition to gather support for having a ‘March for Kindness.’
The Too Short Recess Team has written a formal letter to request more recess time which, they argue, will improve their focus and ability to learn and collaborate during class.
In Agent Kenny’s class:
The Pollution Team aims to become organized and start a club to help their community. They’ve taken action already by creating posters to recruit more members.
The Racism Team plans to talk with the Counselor about organizing a ‘No Place For Hate March.’ They’ve already come up with catch phrases to inspire unity!
Keep in touch, and let us know how your missions go!

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.
