Rising freshmen will get a sneak peek of the campus at the annual Flight School hosted by Student Council Tuesday from 9 a.m until noon.

“We are hoping this will help students feel comfortable and excited about the transition from middle school to high school,” Student Council advisor Kandy Stevens said via email. “It provides them an opportunity to ask questions, get familiar with the building and interact with staff and students on a more personal level.”

With the 2019-2020 school beginning Aug. 15, the new wave of freshmen will attend seven different stations to learn the ins and outs of high school.

“Freshman will have the opportunity to hear from [school resource] Officer Hubbard, Pulse, and the counselors and APs,” Student Council president Emma Hancock said via text. “They will also learn high school tips and tricks with student council members and attend a session on technology use at school. They will receive their class T-shirts and be informed of the dress code. On top of all of that, they’ll have the chance to learn about lots of different clubs and organizations on campus at our club fair. We finish with a pep rally, where cheerleaders, band, and Red Rhythm will perform.”
