College Colors Day

Fort Worth, Texas – Teachers and staff at Fort Worth ISD schools are being encouraged to dress in their college colors on Friday, September 1, 2017 as a way to further encourage students to consider the goal of a college education.

Schools may be creative. While some may have everyone dressing in gear from his or her favorite institution, others may have a locker decorating contest or classroom door decorating contest. Still other campuses may play the fight song of nearby or popular universities or bring in a speaker to promote the benefits of higher education.

“I know that many of our counselors are doing great and exciting things with their students, parents and staff to celebrate College Colors Day,” said Dr. Anita Perry, director of Academic Advisement. “It is important for us to continue to foster the culture that expects students to become life-long learners.”
