Cheering at HSN during freshmen orientation
Aug. 25, 2023-- The days leading up to the start of the 2023-2024 school year have provided an opportunity for incoming students to get a head start, and become acclimated to their new surroundings, and that’s all the more important for those entering the big show, a.k.a. high school.

Yesterday, during High School North's freshmen orientation, seniors helped guide incoming students around the building, sports teams and clubs set up stations to let freshmen know about the school's opportunities for involvement, and other staff members couldn't help but get in the act of cheering on (above) the Class of 2027. Two sessions at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. were reportedly very well attended, and the latest class of HSN students puts the school's enrollment at more than 2,000 (!).

Meanwhile, at High School East, incoming freshmen met and heard from school leaders and administrators, were introduced to athletic opportunities, the Chess Club, marching band, Student Council, and much more, and got a feel for life as a Raider and the school pride that goes along with that.

Best of luck at your new schools to all of our incoming freshmen ... from the looks of things (gallery below), you're going to have a blast.
