Orientation 2011: Classes Begin the Year Together

ninth grade orientation willistonWhile academic classes started on Tuesday, September 13, in many ways the real start of school was the Monday before, when the Upper School celebrated the new school year with orientation activities.

From ropes courses to improv, from dodgeball to scavenger hunts (with GPS technology!), each grade at Williston worked together in new ways, welcomed new classmates, and spent time with returning ones. Planned by grade advisors, each of the class activities was organized to help new students integrate into their classes.

All orientation programs are part of the school’s advising program, which works to ensure each student’s success both academically and socially. But we think the pictures show that all those activities were pretty fun, too!
