    Freshmen Orientation
    Friday, August 2nd, 2024
    At Freshman Orientation, your student will learn what it means to be a West Park Panther. Drop your student off between 8:00 and 8:30 AM. The morning will begin with a high-energy rally followed by a student-led orientation. Your student will be placed in a group with about ten 9th grade peers and two upperclassmen leaders. This will be your students' ‘Link Crew’ for the rest of the year. Your student can expect a day of fun, the opportunity to make new friends, and a tour of the campus so they know where to go on the first day of school. Sorry parents, this is a student-only event!
