Reflecting on Freshmen First Days
Over the past couple of days I got to be a part of the freshman first days and worked with new students on digital citizenship, team building, and learning the in-and-outs of Notability. The new freshman brought a lot of fresh energy and I feel that the extra preparation over the last couple of days will pay dividends throughout the year. A big shout out to the student leaders and especially all of the teachers that spent many hours planning the first days sessions! Just within the last two days, 56 Elk Grove teachers worked together and volunteered throughout parts of their day to run 14 unique sessions that served over 500 freshmen. This collaborative effort will help ensure that our incoming freshman feel comfortable and prepared for their year ahead.
Here are just a few of the tweets from the past two days of the freshmen first days. The EG Nation is off to a great start!
