Welcome to WSU Early Outreach
It is that time of the year where eighth graders are registering for high school and are getting prepared for the BIG move, HIGH SCHOOL! In efforts to help students learn more about Southridge High School, their new home, the counselors organized an 8th Grade Parent Night, where parents and students came to learn about the courses they can take during their freshmen year, in addition to getting acquainted to their new school. Since the GEAR UP program will be able to provide services to the incoming freshmen class the GEAR UP staff was present at this event. GEAR UP provided parents and students information about the services provided by the program as well as letting parents and students know about GEAR UP’s extra support that students will be receiving throughout their high school careers. GEAR UP also provided families with information about the summer program they are hosting in partnership with SHS, as an opportunity for them to have an advantage of a head start in their new school. Many students and parents are very excited for this new transition and are very happy that the GEAR UP program will be available to their student and their family. Welcome to SHS incoming Class of 2018 Freshmen!
