This week we welcome our next class of Cardinals: the Class of 2017. Thursday night, March 7, 2013 is the Cardinal Welcome for our incoming Freshman Class for next year. It’s important to remember the reason for making sure of the transition from middle school to high school is implemented with fidelity – to ensure we create an environment and atmosphere for our newest students that create a bond and affection for Benton that will last for a lifetime.
If you are a Senior CAMP teacher, a teacher who has freshmen in your classes, or you are a athletic or activity coach, it’s important for you to be a part of welcoming this incoming class of students. These students look for us to see what their future is going to be. They are looking to see if the light is on in the window, and if they are welcome to come inside. Let’s make this 8th Grade Orientation night one of the best. Please make sure you have a table or sign ready, and you have materials to share with our future Cardinals and their parents. We get one chance at a first impression. Let’s show the Class of 2017 what it means to be a Benton Cardinal!
