Freshmen Friends

Freshmen Friends is an event that helps introduce the upcoming freshmen to the “high school life.” Student Council (StuCo) is the club that has organized this event for the past couple years. The 2018 Freshmen will meet in the HS gymnasium on August 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., they will be assigned their guide, who will be a sophomore, junior, OR senior, the students in the gym will be seated in the bleachers until all introductions, instructions, and activities have been explained/done.

Once the introductions have been made and all students are where they need to be, meaning they are placed in the groups they need to be in, they will be shown around the high school, shown the football field/track, while some groups of students stay in the HS Gym; there will also be refreshments offered in the high school cafeteria.

If you are interested in being a Freshmen Friend speak to Mrs. Cunningham, room 36, in the high school building. We hope to see many new faces on August 20!

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
