There appeared to be a fantastic turn out at orientation Tuesday night! If you couldn’t attend, here is a short summary of what you missed:
Mr. Urness started off the evening by welcoming everyone and introducing the staff. Staff members shared about what to expect in their classes, supplies needed, and some basic expectations. Keep watch for a future post for a list of supplies that you’ll need for each class!
Mr. Urness also stressed the importance of organization. I can assure you, we will work on this a lot! Planners will be handed out in English class during the first week. Most 7th grade teachers require daily usage of these planners.
Mr. Reaves, our new high school principal, also had a lot of great advice and things to share. “Come see us with any questions or concerns- anytime!” was his message to students. He also stressed the importance of athletics and explained that it’s not too late to sign up. Brochures were handed out highlighting all of the opportunities that are available to you. Keep watch for a post on that as well!
A helpful hint that he gave was to take your lock home before school starts to practice the combination. If you are in Mrs. Glassman’s PE class, you can purchase a gym lock for $4.00 from the office and use it all through high school.
Mr. Nelson, the assistant principal, works directly with students and families to insure a positive school environment. He expects students to be kind and respectful to one another and is always glad to help if there is an issue!
Mr. Nelson helped organize a group of students to assist in the hallways during the first days of school. They can help you with your locker, where to go for a class, or any other question or concern you may have. Please don’t hesitate to ask them for assistance; they are great students! The will have bright green shirts on with “Rams Helping Students” on the front.
It was great to see and meet so many of you last night! For those of you that had to miss, we’ll see you soon!!
Mrs. L 🙂
