High School Welcomes Class of 2019

The high school hosted an orientation for its incoming students and their families prior to the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
The purpose of the interactive program, led by Principal Linda Carter, was to provide the freshmen with valuable information about school policies, expectations and tips about how to best succeed under the guidance of the committed staff. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham spoke to students about how much they can accomplish at the high school, and encouraged them to try their best as soon as they begin their first year.
“As you have now entered through the doors of Freeport High School, you have just stepped into a wonderful world of opportunities,” Dr. Kuncham said. “At Freeport High School, anything and everything that you want to become is possible. We want to make sure that the entire class of 2019 graduates on time. I urge you to study as hard as you can, become involved, make the right choices, and be dedicated to your work. If you do that, the sky is the limit for you.”
Freshmen and their families were divided into groups to further enhance their orientation experience; parents engaged in discussions with guidance counselors, administrators and department chairpersons for specialized information, while students received a guided tour of the school by members of the Peer Leadership Program. In breakout sessions, the Peer Leadership staff also led discussions with students about topics including the freshman experience, study skills and extra-curricular activities.
The freshman orientation served to prepare the class of 2019 for their first days of ninth-grade, and inspired them to continue working hard as they transition from Dodd to the high school.
