On Thursday, August 13, 2009, from 7-8:30 p.m., there will be a program to welcome freshman and new students to Wawasee High School. Orientation activities will help new students learn how to be successful in high school, find their classes, learn about clubs and activities and become familiar with the building. New students will be given their schedules and locker assignments as part of the orientation program. Students will have the opportunity to tour the building with their parents after a presentation by WHS administration and guidance. There will be current Wawasee High School students in grades 10-12 stationed throughout the building to provide direction and answer questions as students and parents tour the building. Part of the tour will include a free snack and an opportunity to go through the lunch line to see how it works.
Parents and students should arrive no later than 7 p.m. to the high school, as the presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Schedules and locker assignments will not be available until after the presentation by administration and guidance. Once the student and parent(s) receive the schedule and locker assignment, they will tour the building with the help of a map and the student mentors.
Students who will be new to Wawasee Community School Corporation who will be in grades 9-12 are also invited to attend. These students should call the Wawasee High School guidance office to make an appointment to enroll. This is necessary in order to be part of the orientation program.
To make an appointment to enroll a new students or for questions, please call 574-457-3147, ext. 220.
