These presentations allow parents to hear important information regarding the school year and meet and hear from key school figures including the freshman grade-level principal Matt Barrett. All incoming freshmen students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend.
Other class-level meetings will take place during enrichment periods on Thursday, Aug. 16, to provide further information for students in each grade level.
