North Webster High School will hold freshman orientation on Tuesday, August 7, from 1 to 3 p.m.
This will be a time for incoming freshmen to become acquainted with North Webster High School.
"During orientation we will discuss NWHS expectations, policies and procedures, dress code, and many other things freshmen need to know about high school," said principal Jeff Franklin. "There will be a time for students to meet the 9th grade teachers and take a tour of the school. Orientation will begin promptly at 1 p.m. in the cafeteria."
Doors will open around 12:30 p.m. so students can come early and catch up with friends before the program begins. Students are welcome to dress casually, but should use good judgment in their choice of clothing.
All parents are reminded about Back-to-School Sunday on August 5, from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
High school registration will be set up in the main corridor, while Junior High will be in the cafeteria. At Back-to-School Sunday, parents will update student information, pick up bus passes, and pay school fees.
There will also be school spirit t-shirts for sale and the 2012 yearbook will be available for pick-up. August 13 will be the first full day for all students from 8:10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Buses will pick up students at their designated stop and run shuttles from the outlying schools.
The North Webster High School office is open daily from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. for any needs parents or students might have.
"Please stop by if you have questions or need any assistance getting ready for school," Franklin said. "Any student new to Webster Parish needs to come by the school by August 3 or at Back-to-School Sunday to register. Items required for new student registration include: birth certificate, social security card, shot records and two proofs of residence. "
NWHS does not publish a school supply list because there are multiple teachers teaching the same subjects and they have different requirements for each class.
"If you want to purchase some items in advance, you can't go wrong with 6 notebooks, loose leaf paper, pens, and pencils," Franklin said. "This should be about all you need for most of your classes."
