New Student Orientation

Thank you to all of the new students and their families that attended the New Student Orientation last week.  We really enjoyed meeting all of you and we hope that you found it helpful.  If you were unable to attend one of the seven main campus orientation sessions, below is a link to the presentation.  Please also make sure that you create your PowerSchool parent account and complete the permissions (see Step 4).  The instructions for creating that account were mailed in mid July and are also included in a link below.  If you need assistance with this process please contact us at (616)364-8421.
