CIS holds student orientation

Staff Reports

— 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.
