Welcome, Class of 2022!
Eighty-five members of the Class of 2022 convened for 9th grade orientation today. This class includes students from 14 different municipalities in Maine and China: Beijing, Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Cranberry Isles, Deer Isle, Ellsworth, Fletchers Landing, Penobscot, Orland, Sedgwick, Stonington, and Surry.
The students arrived by 8:00 A.M., and then they went to an assembly where faculty members introduced themselves. After that, the new students split into their advisory groups for their first advisory of the year. By 9:00 A.M., the advisory groups had convened on the front lawn for several fun team-building and ice-breaking activities, most of which are included in the photo gallery. After lunch, they ran through a very abbreviated school day so they could find their classrooms and meet their teachers.
As Mr. Kane said, you all bring so much to GSA, different interests, skills, and backgrounds. We're happy to have you with us!
