8th Grade Orientation for Students and Parents brought a crowd into the ConVal Gymnasium on May 31st. Interim principal Gib West addressed the audience and stressed the importance of getting involved in the many activities that the high school offers to its students.
“Get involved and explore the opportunities before you,” Mr. West said. “High school is all about finding out what you’re good at and what you want to pursue further. Find your passion, and if we don’t have something yet that fits your specific interest, we can make that happen for you.”
Student speaker Michael Zrzavy referenced the importance of using this evening to make first contact with school counselors and the school nurses to make the transition from middle school as smooth as possible.
Zrzavy also briefly reviewed the rich athletic program at ConVal and the athletic teams that permit three-season participation with fall, winter, and spring sports.
He also noted the many co-curricular offerings that ConVal has in store for students.
