Rising Freshmen Orientation

posted Jun 16, 2017, 5:33 AM by Kelly Bisogno   [ updated Jun 16, 2017, 5:34 AM ]

Rising Freshmen Orientation

Freshmen Orientation is the start of a great beginning at James River High! It starts with a day-long orientation for incoming freshmen that is led by a group of James River High School students and teachers.

During Orientation you will:
  • receive your schedule and have a chance to find your classes and meet your teachers
  • navigate around the building
  • earn what Rapid PRIDE means from upper class students
  • meet and interact with your upperclass mentors
  • meet other incoming freshmen from other schools and make new friends
  • have fun
  • receive lunch and a Rapid t-shirt

Rapid Freshman Orientation Day is Thursday, August 31, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 pm @JRHS

Please register before August 31. On-site registration and check in for pre-registered participants begins at 8:30. (Fall sport or performing arts participants will be excused from practices and rehearsals).

The fee is $25.00 and covers lunch, a t-shirt and an outstanding program.

Parent Orientation : 1:00 – 2:00 pm in the Library
We are also offering an opportunity for parents of rising freshmen to get answers to questions and discuss the best methods to help their children be successful Rapids. Since high school is very different than middle school - including the culture, rules, expectations, and rigor, - we encourage you to attend!
