Assets In Action: Homecoming a way to bond with school

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Monday, the Kid’s Count Report was released, detailing the status of New Mexico youth, showing our state in 50th place.
I know I have said it before, but so much could change if everyone just embraced the Assets philosophy and tried to add it into their daily activities.
This week we focus on Asset number No. 24. Bonding to school — Young person cares about her or his school.
I would love for you to share your thoughts about what bonded you to your school? What was it that made you feel great about your school?
I didn’t go to school here, but I believe I feel bonded to all three levels of school because this is where my children will gain many of their Assets.
I grew up in a decent home, in a decent neighborhood, but still feel it was the Florida Public Education system which gave me a great deal of Assets.
This Asset generally times out to be discussed just prior to homecoming, no I’m not that organized, just lucky.
Homecoming is a really easy time for all of us to bond as a community.
The events and activities like the parade, the things for sale, the football game and best of all, Secundino Sandoval wearing his letterman jacket, all make the week special.
