2017 9th Grade Orientation Letter

July 2017

Dear Woodbury High School Freshman Student:

Welcome to Woodbury High School, Home of the Royals!

Orientation for the freshman class is on Wednesday, August 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Woodbury High School. View  the bus schedule for that day if you need transportation.

Orientation will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Main Gym. We'll be working together in large and small group activities where you will meet your Link Crew Leaders and each other. It is also a great opportunity to meet building administration, counselors, and other key personnel, as well as learn more about school culture and procedures. Wear comfortable clothes and get ready to have some fun! Lunch will be available for all students in the cafeteria. Students will be able to access their lunch account from middle school or should bring money to pay for a regular school lunch. After lunch, students will receive their schedules and run through a mock schedule which will allow them to find their classes, meet their teachers, determine their lunch period (A, B, C, or D lunch), locate their locker, and try their combination. Students will also be able to check out any needed textbooks for the upcoming school year. Link crew leaders and staff will be on hand to assist with all activities and to lead tours and/or help locate classrooms. 

Student planners will be available to purchase for $5 during Orientation. During the school year, planners will be available in the Accounts Office. In addition, Lifetouch National Studios will be taking student pictures for 9th grade students during orientation. If you choose to purchase pictures, please bring the order form along with your payment. You may visit Lifetouch.com for clothing suggestions, online payment details and more. Lifetouch will also be taking student photos on Tuesday, August 23 and Wednesday, August 24 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the event that you are unable to attend orientation on August 30. There will also be a make-up date scheduled for Tuesday, October 3 during the school day.

Finally, beginning August 7, you may access your Woodbury High School 2017-2018 class schedule by logging on to the Parent Portal. Please be aware that we continue to work on the school’s Master Schedule throughout the summer, and while your class selections should not change, the class period and teacher could change as we balance class sizes. A printed version of your schedule will be handed out during orientation. 

We are looking forward to working with each of you and know that the Woodbury High School experience will bring you success.
