Show Some School Spirit!

pennant with Go Team! written on itRemember going to your first K-State homecoming event? All the festivities? You probably spent the night before figuring out just how much purple you could wear to show your team spirit!

Well, don’t forget the fun of it all as you begin your teaching career! Besides K-State, you now have new Homecoming traditions—a parade, supporting the marching band, having special “dress-up” days, Homecoming queen and king, the big football game, etc. Be sure to recognize all those opportunities your students are involved in as you settle in to your new school.

As a K-Stater, you know how important those events are—how they provide incentives for your students, a sense of belonging to a school family, and self-esteem. As time allows, try to attend some of the other events to cheer on your students—and to show that you recognize their interests and efforts outside the classroom.

And, in case you need a bit more purple in your life, don’t forget the upcoming KSU football games:

  • HOME GAME! Nov. 5 (Thursday) vs. Baylor, 6:30 p.m.
  • HOME GAME! Nov. 21 vs. Iowa State, TBA
