WESTERN SPRINGS – The Lyons Township High School class of 2021 had an opportunity to spend an entire day at the school's South Campus in Western Springs before their first official day of school Aug. 21.
Incoming freshmen gathered for Freshman Experience Day on Aug. 16 to become familiar with the campus, faculty, staff and other students, according to a school news release.
The freshmen were divided into small groups led by upper classmen and supervised by an adult staff member. The small groups discussed LT traditions and expectations for the next four years.
Presentations from administrators also were scheduled, as well as team-building activities, tours of South Campus and a complimentary pizza lunch in the main courtyard.
Freshman Experience Day is an LT tradition that makes the transition from middle school to high school a little bit easier, the release stated.
