GEAR UP Idaho focuses on early intervention strategies to assist students in becoming prepared for post-secondary education. The program will help students meet standards necessary for high school graduation and provide them with the skills necessary to succeed beyond high school.

 

With GEAR UP 3, the 7th grade cohort will participate in activities such as, but not limited to: STEM, College Awareness, Career Awareness, Financial Literacy, and Life Skills. Students will also have the opportunity to take college campus tours and attend week long Youth Summit stays on campuses throughout Idaho.

 

We are very excited to begin this new program at the middle school. We welcome all parents to subscribe to the monthly newsletter (link below), as well as follow us on Facebook at Gear Up Bonners Ferry, and Instagram at GEARUP.BCSD. These are a few ways to get information on what GEAR UP is doing in your child's school. Please reach out if you have any questions or stop by my office at the middle school.

 

Sincerely,
