Orientation activities for incoming freshman students and parents/guardians are scheduled for Wednesday, August 29, 2012. We hope that these orientation programs will answer questions you have about Hunterdon Central and make you feel like part of our family.
Orientation: August 29, from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM – (Upper) Campus Auditorium
All incoming freshmen are invited to a Freshmen Orientation on Wednesday, August 29, from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. This special morning session has been planned to help students become comfortable with the high school, as well as to take care of some “new student business”. Please note that this orientation is for incoming freshmen students only. Students who cannot attend this program will receive their schedule in the mail. Their photo ID and locker assignment will be handled by the Freshman House Office during the first week of school.
Parents/guardians will need to provide transportation for their children to Hunterdon Central. To alleviate congestion when dropping students off we encourage you to carpool. All students should be dropped off at the upper campus (fountain) entrance between 8:05 AM and 8:20 AM. Upon arrival students will be directed to an assigned Alpha Homeroom; homeroom assignments will be posted on the Hunterdon Central Web-site on the “New Student” Webpage later in the summer, and you will receive notification when the information is available. Parents/guardians should pick up their children, at the same location, at 12:30 PM.
Once at Central, the student orientation will consist of the following:
Short presentations by selected staff members.
ID photos—students’ individual pictures.
Distribution of academic schedules and important forms.
The opportunity to walk through the student schedule and see where classes are located.
Locker assignments—students will need to bring $5.00 in cash, or a check made payable to HCRHS, in order to purchase a lock for their assigned hall locker.
Orientation activities and the opportunity to meet staff and fellow classmates.
Students will have an opportunity to purchase snacks during the program.
August 29 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM – (Upper) Campus Auditorium
Parents/guardians of incoming freshmen are invited to attend an information session from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday, August 29, in the Auditorium. Parents/guardians will have the opportunity to meet members of the Administrative Team, learn about the high school and have questions answered. Please note that this information session is for parents/guardians - not for students.
If your child needs any additional support for this day, please contact Special Ed Coordinator, Kim Dubiel prior to August 20. Ms. Dubiel can be reached at 908/284-7149. We look forward to seeing you on August 29. Have a great summer!
