FRAMINGHAM – Incoming students will get a preview of what their life will be like at Framingham High through the school’s freshman orientation.
The orientation will be on August 27, from 7:30 Ato 10:45 a.m.
It is open to both incoming freshman and transfer students. There will also be an information night for parents on September 5.
During the first half of the orientation, students will get to know administrators, school councilors, support and staff through a presentation. After the presentation is over, they will be taken to their homerooms, and go on a tour of the building.
The new student population is very large this year, as there will be approximately 686 new students, as of last week.
“It is traditionally a little higher then what we’ve seen in the last few years,” said Jon Kanavich and Greg Lagan, the assistant principals of the classes of 2020 and 2024.
However, students and parents don’t necessarily have to wait until orientation day to familiarize themselves with the school.
Starting this week, the school will be hosting their “Seniors Helping Freshman” program, where members of the senior class will take new students on a tour of the building. They will be every day from 9 to 11 a.n.
The school year will begin on August 28, according to the website for Framingham High students. It s also the first day of school for students in grades 1-8.
