smiling students greeted by cheering staff

Sixth and ninth graders were welcomed back to school today with plenty of #PonyPride! Teachers and student mentors greeted incoming students with cheers and high fives as they arrived for their first day of school. Oak-Land Middle School even rolled out the red carpet! Special orientations were held at both middle schools and Stillwater Area High School to help students as they transition to their new buildings. As part of the Link Crew and Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) programs older students serve as mentors to help their younger counterparts discover what it takes to be successful in school. The incoming students toured the buildings and got to know each other during small group activities. They will meet together throughout the year for social activities, study groups, and more structured activities. For pictures visit our Facebook page.
