 East Islip ninth graders urged to get involved at orientation thumbnail197231

At the high school’s freshman orientation on Aug. 30, the theme was reaching outside of your comfort zone and getting involved in sports, clubs, honor societies and other activities. Administrators and guidance counselors welcomed the Class of 2024, discussing everything from safety protocols to ID cards.

“Being a part of the freshman orientation is always something that I enjoy,” said Assistant Principal Jean Marie D’Aversa. “I love seeing the new faces in the building and getting to know the incoming students. This year, high school students from various clubs and honor societies volunteered to assist in orientation, providing our ninth graders with tips and tricks for high school from class preparation and locker setup to walking their schedule to find their classes. High school is such an important and valuable time in the lives of these students, and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it.”
