Administrators, faculty, and student volunteers welcomed future dolphins at the annual new student orientation held Aug. 22.
“About 350-400 kids [attended],” said NSO adviser Darcy Pohl. “It was a great turn out.”
Rising freshmen, as well as other new students, were able to talk to staff members, meet with their school counselors, take tours of Ocean Lakes, and more.
“We had 51 clubs participate in the activities display as well as the PTSA and Friends of Athletics,” said orientation adviser Carlin Conaway. “Students could also purchase P.E. uniforms and pick up their Chromebooks.”
A total of 27 students volunteered for NSO staff.
“Being on staff was super fun and rewarding,” said junior Aarushi Patel. “It was nice to see the work you put in over the summer finally come to life.”
