Finley GEAR UP Carnival

GEARUP2Schools across the country celebrated National GEAR UP Week September 22-26, 2014 to commemorate the continuing success of Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP).  As part of their celebratory week of events, River View High School hosted a carnival at the school the afternoon of Wednesday, September 24.

GEAR UP is a college access program providing students and families the support and resources they need for college success.  GEAR UP staff in Finley chose to host the carnival for students and their families in order to raise awareness about the program and to celebrate the start to another great year of college readiness.  The carnival took place after school was dismissed at 12:30 PM, and the turnout was great.  While students were free to leave when school was released, many students chose to stick around to enjoy the carnival together. (Yes, high school students CHOOSING to stay at school!)  Erika Martinez, a GEAR UP tutor for RVHS, said this family-like atmosphere is very evident in Finley’s schools.
