High School 101 helps class of 2021 become “Raider ready”

Emma Wertz | Raider Staff

A week before school started, National Honor Society members and sponsors prepared lessons for the incoming class of 2022. This High School 101 event was put on to help make the incoming freshmen “Raider Ready.” The lessons were created to help the freshmen feel more comfortable making the transition from middle school to high school.

NHS members taught the lessons and welcomed the new students. Senior Andersen Vaughan said, “While we were there to gain volunteer hours, incoming freshmen do like to hear what upperclassmen have to say, so it was nice to have a little bit of an impact on them.”

The freshmen were split into groups and taken to different classrooms, each classroom with a different presentation.
Students learned about email etiquette, time management, note taking, and organization. All these things were to help make their first year of high school easier.

“I taught how to take Cornell notes. This topic is important because this is a very effective way to learn the information being taught. Titling your notes and asking yourself questions on the side helps make studying
easier,” senior Alex Appel said.

Freshman Sean Rombach said, “I would definitely recommend attending HS 101 to incoming classes, because when you’re making that transition from middle school to high school, skills such as organization, notes and time  management come in handy quite often.”
