CB Alumni & Friends to participate in “The Promise of Iowa” campaign


     
May 29-June 4th – CB Alumni & Friends Network encourages all our Alumni to participate with us in the The Promise of Iowa Campaign during the week leading up to the AL and TJ Graduation Ceremonies. 
 
Iowa’s #1 graduation rate comes to life in May, when all of the hard work and dedication from students, educators, parents, district staff and school boards comes to culmination in one important day–commencement. The Iowa Association of School Boards launched “The Promise of Iowa” campaign to focus attention on the future of Iowa public school students and to rally support for investments in public education.  Iowa’s future leaders, innovators and citizens are its children. They are “The Promise of Iowa.” Their future is created every day by Iowa public schools.  Iowans have an enduring commitment of support for public education and its connection to developing the potential of our young people, strengthening our communities, and contributing to our economy. Public education is such a core value in our state that “Foundation in Education” is even the centerpiece of our state quarter!

 

HOW TO JOIN IN TO SUPPORT:
Alumni: Share your support on social media using #ThankYouIA along with a photo of you in your Alumni gear, with your diploma, or better yet – attend the Graduation ceremony!
Parents: We want to help you commemorate this special day and celebrate your graduates. Use the toolkit to say #ThankYouIA for Iowans’ investment in public education and celebrate your public school graduate with a “Proud Parent of an Iowa Public School Grad” social media graphic!
Future 2017 Alumni: Upload a selfie in your grad cap and gown and use the hashtag #ThankYouIA to help thank Iowans for their investment in public education.
