High School Orientations Offer Smooth Transition for Freshmen
Incoming Levittown ninth-graders at General Douglas MacArthur High School and Division Avenue High School prepared for their new school year with orientation assemblies on Aug. 31, to provide students with key information as they transition from a middle school student to high school freshman.
At both buildings, the students were reunited with their peers and were warmly welcomed by their building principal. They received information on how to be successful in high school and were placed in a group with a peer leader. Peer leaders consisted of seniors who served as mentors for the students during their orientation day. They showed them around the building, helped them with their locks and answered any questions that students had about classes or teachers.
