Incoming Sixth-Graders Find New Goals at Orientation


As summer came to a close, incoming sixth-graders at Robert Frost gathered for orientation day on Aug. 25. Helpful guidance counselors and members of Frost’s National Junior Honor Society worked with groups of the younger students, helping to give them a head start in their new school and learn what Frost has to offer.

Incoming sixth-grader Allison Garcia came away from the orientation with a strong resolve to make new friends during the school year. Her friend Keziah Pierre-Louis also thought the orientation was fun and gave her new goals. “Robert Frost is a great school,” she said. “I want to try out for step squad and join clubs.”

Another new student, Karly Haskins, said, “I was actually nervous at first, but when I saw my friends and the guidance counselors, I realized this is going to be the best year ever and I can’t wait to start.”

“It was great to see the sixth-graders’ enthusiasm during the orientation,” added Associate Principal Gary Ramonetti.
