Welcome to WSU Early Outreach
In honor of National GEAR UP week, 8th grade GEAR UP students at Chief Moses Middle School had the honor of listening to "America's Top Young Speaker" Arel Moodie talk to them about the value of an education and tips for being successful while being in school.
In this high energy assembly, students learned tricks on how to make their teachers' heads "explode" and how to make school more fun. Arel talked to students about what to do in order to establish relationships with their teachers, so that they can be more successful, and in his words how to let others know how "awesome" they are.
Students were excited and motivated during this assembly, especially when Arel gave away prizes for participating, but the most excitement came when all 8th grade GEAR UP students found out that they were receiving a copy of Arel Moodie's book Your Starting Point For Student Success. Students have reported that this book is an easy read, and that it has given them tips that are applicable to both school and life.
Chief Moses was grateful to have experienced such an awesome motivational speaker, and look forward to their students implementing Arel's version of "awesomeness" here at Chief Moses MS!
