CIS holds student orientation
Craig — Craig Intermediate School hosted an orientation Tuesday for new students. Fifth-graders new to the school were welcomed with games, a barbecue and an introduction to a sixth-grade student.
Tom Nagoda, coordinator of the event and school counselor, believes the orientation is a tremendous way to start the school year.
“We try to make it a positive and fun way to start school,” Nogoda said.
This event also allows students to speak with sixth-graders-to-be that also curbs the nervousness.
According to Nagoda, the orientation really helps the transition from elementary to intermediate school.
Principal Bruce Gregg also believes the kick-off picnic is a positive experience. “This is a great activity for kids to make them feel more comfortable,” he said.
Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
