Dear incoming 9th grade students and parents/guardians,
We are very excited to begin the process of getting to know you, while also preparing you to select your courses for your first year with us at Averill Park High School!
This Tuesday, January 10, at 6:30 p.m. we will be holding our annual Course Selection and Program Orientation for Incoming 9th Grade Students and Parents at Averill Park High School.
This will be a “freestyle event” allowing you to rotate through a variety of stations of your choice, as you see fit;
- a Q&A Panel with Students and Parents,
- a Meet and Greet with our Teachers (along with some great refreshments) in the cafeteria,
- a Q&A Panel with our Counseling Team, and
- an Athletics Information Station.
Additionally, self-tours of the building will be available, and the HS Leadership Team will be available in the lobby throughout the evening.
Here is a link to the agenda for the evening: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zhBfriMeKFlSUXHh0VfvFY23GIHh9XM0/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=110160468850511334649&rtpof=true&sd=true
Paper copies will also be available as you enter the building on Tuesday night.
Prior to this, on Tuesday during the day, we will be spending time with all of our incoming 9th grade students at Algonguin during their PE classes. Immediately after the session, we will send all parents and students the slides we share with our students, so that everyone has access to the same information.
Here is a link to a welcome video from our HS Leadership Team, and one of our School Counselors, Kelly Stone, which provides an overview of general information related to the high school, as well as the course selection process. https://youtu.be/doDRQ9Wt30k
