GEAR UP Week

The week of Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 23, 2016 is "GEAR UP Week" - Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs.   Each day has been set aside for activities which will be completed during freshmen classes to promote post-secondary education!

Monday, September 19 -  Staff College Casual Day and Freshmen Scavenger Hunt

Tuesday, September 20 - GEAR UP Assembly for Freshmen (7th period)

Wednesday, September 21 - #GEARUP Poster Contest (to be completed in Freshmen math classes) to promote the GEAR UP program

Thursday, September 22 - Dream Wall - Students created a "Dream Wall" in C Building.  On clouds, they wrote about things they enjoy doing, what they want to do in the future, and something they might have to do to #getoutofyourcomfortzone in order to be successful and achieve their dreams

Friday, September 23 - Staff College Casual Day and Freshmen assembly in the stadium.  Students made paper airplanes and wrote messages on them of things they think might stand in their way or keep them from reaching their goals in life.  Then in small groups, they released the airplanes, symbolically letting go of these obstacles! 

It was a great week for both students and staff at WiHi! Check out some of the pictures in the slide shows below!
