1. Learn about your school.
Gather information about programs and services in your school.
Talk with your teachers, principal, parents, lunch room workers,
custodians, librarian, and nurse to get information. How are
these programs and services funded? Are there any LBJ programs
that still exist (maybe under another name)?
Are there ways in which you could volunteer some of your time
to help in your school? Talk with your teachers, principal,
and parents to explore options.
What kinds of celebrations and festivals does your school
offer? Can you participate? Would you be able to help with
the festival preparation?
Compile a history of your school. Use information from your
school library, public library, interviews with past students
and teachers, etc. Has the school population changed? How?
Has the building changed? How? What is present in your school
today that did not exist when it first opened?
Learn about the Library.
the school library, the public library, or a college/university
library. Look at college catalogs and talk with your teachers
and parents. What are the minimum requirements for entering
college? What classes will you have to take to prepare yourself
to enter college? What grades must you have? Are extra-curricular
activities (sports, band, orchestra, volunteer work, drama,
etc.) important for college admission?
