Freshman Student Orientation - August 30th

August 2022

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians of The Class of 2026:

Welcome to Nonnewaug! We look forward to having you as part of our school community and joining you in all of your successes over the next four years! We understand that transitioning to high school brings many emotions: excitement, anxiety, and anticipation for students, parents, and guardians alike. We hope our Freshman Student Orientation will help alleviate nervousness while increasing your excitement and anticipation for the first day of school. Please note that we plan to send a follow-up email to all NHS parents and students regarding other information that will be helpful to families as we prepare for the school opening on September 1st. 

Our Freshman Student Orientation for students will be held on Tuesday, August 30th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The schedule of events is linked here. We ask that students be dropped off in front of the agriscience building and picked up from the student parking lot, as shown on the slide linked here. Following the whole school Freshman Orientation, agriscience students and parents' orientation will take place at 3 pm information from the Agriscience department to follow. 

A separate Freshman Parent Orientation will be held on September 29th at 5:15 pm in the cafeteria. The school counseling department will offer this program and introduce high school-related topics such as graduation requirements, academic offerings, and post-secondary planning.

After reviewing the information above, if you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Lewis at Once again, we look forward to meeting you and having you as a new member of the Chiefs' family!
