As a Freshman, you will be assigned to a Freshman Advisory Group. Freshman Advisory Group is a group of approximately fifteen students led by one teacher or counselor and two seniors. The first meeting will be held during Freshman Orientation, which is typically the last Thursday in August. The meetings will continue throughout the school year during Activity Period. During these meetings students will learn about upcoming events such as School Spirit Week and Regents exams. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions about anything that needs clarification.
Your School Counselor is interested in getting to know you!! We will meet with each of you in September. These meetings are called Meet the Freshman and are an opportunity for us to get to know you better.
