Updates and plans from Gullett Agents!

Agent Austrum’s groups were inspired to chose new problems: 1) stray animals/ animals in pounds 2) gun control 3) electoral college. Agents have been researching and making Google docs in order to continue communicating without having to physically meet.

Agent Deatley’a groups were also inspired to chose new problems: 1) Hunger/mental illness within the homeless population 2) stray animals and animal testing. The agents have been involved in lots of research, Google doc making, and plans for bake sales and raising awareness.

WAY TO GO AGENTS! Keep up the great work.

Welcome, Agents of Widén!!

In Agent Peavy and Schell’s Class, Team Uniforms wants to take surveys from students about whether or not they want uniforms. They plan to present the results to the principal. Team Homelessness plans to collect donations for the homeless by having a fundraiser. Just like Agent Bryant’s Team Homelessness, they would like to research where to volunteer and donate. Maybe the two teams can join forces to research the issue of homelessness.

WAY TO GO AGENTS!!   We can’t wait to hear how your missions go!

Welcome, Agents of Gullett!

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

In Agent Austrum’s class, a team focused on Pollution/Global Warming wants to research organizations to donate to, and write articles for their newspaper about how to make picking up trash cool. A team focused on Animal Abuse plans to create a task force wherein the students find dog fighting rings through the Internet and ask adults to report them to the authorities. They’d also like to research what kind of information is provided to pet owners upon adopting a pet so that the education can be supplemented as needed.

In Agent DeAtley’s class, Team Women’s Rights plans to encourage women and girls they know to follow their dreams, whether it be trying out for a sports team, pursuing sciences, or anything! They also plan to listen to the women around them to support the notion that women are trustworthy, regardless of circumstance AND turn the phrase “like a girl” on its head by using it as a compliment or asking people to explain what they mean if they hear it used as an insult. Team  Anti- Terrorism want to do more research and meet at lunch to share findings and write letters.

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