Are you a new student? These welcome bags are just for you! Go to your grade level guidance counselor for more information.

For new students attending school after the school year has already begun, we have have a gift foyou!

Welcome bags were first talked about on December 8. These welcome bags come from the Friends of Rachael club. They helped counselors put together these bags for new students.

The welcome bags include three pencils, an agenda for the bathroom, nurse, etc., one notebook, two folders, a 3 ring-binder and a snack. There is also a Google Classroom cheat sheet, bell schedule and a map of every grade level.

Each counselor on every grade level floor received eight welcome bags. These welcome bags were able to be put together from donations and grant money.

Seventh grade counselor Sydney Koehle said, “I hope these bags help, especially because the clear backpacks are hard to find.”

These welcome bags are given out to new students to make them feel welcome and to help them get around the school. There are counselor offices on every grade level floor.

Counselors hope that next year we can do something similar for students!
