Freshman Orientation

  • Greetings Parents, Guardians, Incoming 9th Graders!

    On behalf of our administration, faculty, and staff, we cordially invite all 9th grade parents, guardians and students to attend Freshman Orientation! Please register using the link below.
    Sanderson High School is rich in culture, tradition, rituals and pride, which creates a sense of family and community. For many rising 9th graders, the transition from middle school to high school can be nerve racking. As we say goodbye to old friends and begin to meet new friends and teachers, and see new surroundings, this can create stress and anxiety. It can be a daunting experience managing a full course load of classes, as well as, adjusting to first semester and second semester with 8 different teachers. Incoming Freshman will have to become acclimated with teachers' grading expectations, course syllabus, assessments, projects, rubrics and more. In addition to academic demands, the high school day is very active with athletics and a plethora of extracurricular activities/events.
    Incoming 9th graders should attend Freshman orientation this summer to become acclimated with their schedule. Members of student council will lead highly engaging and interactive sessions focusing on study skills, time management, organization, planning, conflict resolution and more.
    There will also be a Parent/Guardian information portion included in the orientation.

    Freshman orientation will provide the following benefits:

    • A full tour of the facility
    • Meet administrators, counselors, student services and other support staff
    • Review of the student code of conduct and attendance compulsory laws
    • Connect with student leaders from student council and other mentoring students
    • Information about Drivers Ed, JROTC, CTE Programs, Academy of Finance, athletic eligibility and more.
    • Receive transportation information- school bus, walkers, and carpool (morning drop off and afternoon pickup)
    • Receive curriculum information about graduation requirements, credits, promotions, GPA, student ranking, scholarships, and mandated state examinations.
    • Become actively engaged by exploring the many extracurricular activities and programs we have offered outside of sports.

    We look forward to seeing you at Freshman Orientation!
