Eighth Grade Open House: Total Success!
Jasmin Morse, Veritas Editor-in-Chief and Web Editor
As the thought of high school starts to dawn on the Class of 2022, RHS took the opportunity to hold an open house for the incoming eighth graders last night, Jan. 10.
This year, RHS Principal, John Harrison decided to switch things up a bit at Open House with the introduction of a quick video to go over all the educational departments here at RHS.
After a greeting by Athletic Director, Gary Graziano, Vice Principal, Kathy Paulding, RHS seniors Jill Donahue and Zachary Peterson, and a panel discussion held by students to talk about RHS culture, parents and eighth graders went to the cafeteria where they had the opportunity to learn more about the clubs and activities available here at the high school.
In the cafeteria, RHS students came to be able to meet the eighth graders and discuss clubs and sports they are apart of to show them that there is something for everyone here at Rockland High School.
Principal Harrison concluded that he was pleased overall with the turn-out, the student involvement, and the professionalism of the informative presentations. All in all, the Open House was a success. With a higher attendance than previous years and more student involvement, the eighth graders and their parents left the school last night feeling more informed about life here at RHS.
