With the final copy of the Raider Report for the 2014-2015 school year comes a period of
transition. This time of transition holds different meaning and traditions for a variety of different populations. For North High School’s seniors, the coming days, weeks and months hold no shortage of events and expectations. Our seniors will be attending events including senior banquet, scholarship night, baccalaureate and culminating with our graduation ceremony. Whether plans have our seniors attending a four-year university or two-year institution, joining the military or entering the workforce, these seniors will have expectations placed upon them for making a positive impact on themselves, their families and their community.
Our current freshmen, sophomores and juniors will begin to transition to the next step in their educational journey. These students will also have a plethora of expectations placed upon them in the coming months. Many of these students will continue with co-curricular activities, classes and community endeavors that have already begun, while other students embark on new opportunities, such as obtaining the driver’s license, getting the first job, taking the WKCE or ACT tests, and planning college visits. No matter the path these students take, their journey is sure to be exciting and filled with opportunities of exploration and learning.
Perhaps the greatest transition in the coming months will occur for our current 8th grade
students. These students will soon enter the wide world of high school. Although these students will be challenged academically, socially and experientially, expectations will be clearly outlined and support will be provided and available for all. It will be important for these students to take advantage of all North High School has to offer. Incoming freshmen are encouraged to begin to build relationships with adults and new peers, to focus on academics and challenging themselves inside and outside the classroom, and to get involved in an activity, club or sport.
No matter what type of transition our students are about to enter, the coming months are sure to bring excitement, challenge, and opportunities through which the staff of North High School is ready and willing to support all stakeholders. Enjoy the journey while keeping the destination always in mind.
