The month of March at Prosser High School has been hectic and very busy as students and staff prepare for conference week and for the upcoming spring break. At our most recent ambassador meeting, topics discussed included GEAR UP Week 2015 as well as the upcoming 4-H Conference that will be taking place this summer at WSU Pullman. Our students are very excited to have the opportunity to attend this event, some for the second year in a row.
Here at GEAR UP, we are taking steps to both wrap up the end of the 2014-2015 school year and already planning for the school year to come. One thing we have been putting our attention towards is an event that we are calling “GEAR UP’s Got Talent”. It is essentially a talent show that our Ambassadors will be using as a fundraiser. This event may also possibly include a silent auction and it will also incorporate facts and concerns about financial aid and college preparation. GEAR Up’s Got Talent will be held next school year in September during National GEAR UP week. Though it’s still a ways from now, our plan is to audition most of our acts in the coming months so that we can prepare and put on the best talent show we possibly can.
During conference week, our GEAR UP staff will be hard at work translating for parents and students who only speak Spanish so they can foster a greater relationship with the teachers and further expand the line of communication from parent, to student, to teacher.
After spring break there are only five weeks remaining in the school year, but the GEAR UP staff here at Prosser High School is dedicated to getting the most out of our students until the very end of the year.
