On Saturday, March 15th over 250 incoming freshman students got to take a peak at their soon to be high school during Lion Adventure Day hosted by Kennewick High School and GEAR UP.
Over 25 clubs/sports teams/ and school organizations set up informational tables where students and parents were able to get information on things there children could do while attending Kennewick High. GEAR UP was able to explain to every student and family its purpose, offerings, and have students work through an interest inventory planning goals for their high school career. Students were given a "Bingo" card that encouraged them to visit 16 booths in order to gain their "Freshman Survival Kit" including pencils, cinch sacks, pencil pouches, and GEAR UP information. Students and their families were also treated to a BBQ lunch served by GEAR UP and Kennewick High School Principal, Ryan Rettig.
Families were able to leave the event with a stronger feeling of understanding on what resources and extra curriculars they and their student could take advantage of while in high school.
