Next S.T.E.P. Students Assemble 5,000 Folders for Future Freshman Night

Next S.T.E.P. Students Assemble 5,000 Folders for Future Freshman Night
February 2012- For the third year in a row, the students from the Next S.T.E.P. program helped assemble 5,000 folders, complete with five brochures and a postcard in each one, for GUHSD’s Future Freshman Night. These folders were then given to future freshmen and their parents at the event, providing them with a glimpse at GUHSD and what it has to offer.

The community relations department recently stopped by the Next S.T.E.P. classroom at Thunderbird High School with pizza and cupcakes, thanking them for their hard work. Without the generosity of the students and teachers in Next S.T.E.P., this project could not have been completed as rapidly or flawlessly.

The Next S.T.E.P. program is a secondary education program which helps students with disabilities aged 18 to 22, who have met the requirements for a diploma but still require transition services to help them gain independence in the community. These transition services include assessment, secondary vocational and postsecondary training, classroom instruction, and more.

GUHSD is incredibly grateful for the students and teachers in the Next S.T.E.P. program and all that they do to help those around them.
