Summer Orientation & Kickoff
You and your incoming freshman student(s) are invited to attend a high school orientation session this summer. The orientation session is designed to help ease your student’s transition to high school and will last about one hour. During the orientation, one of Fremd’s guidance counselors will share information about the high school curriculum, describe services that are available to students, introduce the parent and student portal and promote the value of a positive high school
experience. The program will include a brief building tour.
You are stronly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about Fremd. The orientation sessions are scheduled from June 6 through July 12. Orientation will not be held the week of July 4th. Orientations sessions are available according to the following schedule:
- Morning Sessions: Monday and Wednesday @ 9:00 a.m.
