Skaneateles High School Welcomes Class of 2021
SKANEATELES, NY (August 30, 2017) – The faculty and staff of Skaneateles High School welcomed the Class of 2021 on Monday evening as a part of Freshman Orientation.
High School Principal Gregory Santoro walked students and their families through a typical freshman schedule while reviewing expectations and exploring how freshman can be successful.
A highlight of the evening was a building tour by upper-classmen, pointing out specific ninth grade classrooms, with an opportunity to open individual lockers for the first time.
A new addition to this year’s orientation was the unveiling of the “Laker Link” mentor program, which sees a senior mentor assigned to each freshman student, helping to guide them through their first year at the high school.
The “Laker Link” mentor program gives freshman an opportunity to discover methods for social and academic success while also learning what to expect and how to prepare for high school. In the process, the goal is for freshman to expand their circle and make new friends at the same time.
Orientation also provided an opportunity to review parent communication methods and student support services with the high school including School Tool, School Messenger, online resources, and progress updates.
The first day of school for the Class of 2021 will be Wednesday, September 6.
District residents are reminded that Project 2021, the district’s proposed capital improvement project, will be up for vote on Tuesday, November 14. A full listing of Project 2021 details are listed under the Project 2021 quick link at www.skanschools.org. More information will be out on the pending project in the coming weeks.
