10th Grade- Sophomore's Edition
1st Day of School Info For 10th Grade Students
The 1st Day Is Unique!
I am excited to welcome the class of 2024 to the campus of Fife High School! The 1st day of school is Thursday September 2nd, and it is a day designed primarily to welcome to the Trojan Family incoming Sophomores and new to Fife School District students. For much of the 1st day the only students on campus will be our 10th graders and Blue Crew leaders. We stagger our start with each grade level reporting at different times to slowly acclimate everyone to being back on campus.
I'm so thankful that we will be seeing you in person. While we will not be able to do some of our traditional first day activities due to COVID rules, like an all school assembly, for example, we will still make the most of what we can do to make it a great first day experience. That said, I can tell you that this year's first day will be better than last years, which was spent in a 3 hour zoom session!
It is very normal to feel anxious for the first day, I actually still get nervous for the start of every year too. On the first day we will help you find your classes and important places on campus, meet your teachers and staff, and begin meeting some new friends.
Please read all the information in this newsletter carefully so you have a complete understanding of what your first day will look like! I am beyond excited to get to meet you and welcome you to your high school adventure.
Get 'em Trojans!
What time do I start School?
Where do I go when I get to school? When you arrive just head through the red gates and you will see people greeting you and pointing you in the right direction. When you arrive you will head to your Family class where you will get a copy of your class schedule, meet your Family teacher, and learn about the rest of the day. Look in Skyward to see what your Family teacher and room number is before you arrive, but don't worry we will have people helping you out if you don't know that prior to coming.
What is Family class? Family is simply what we call our advisory period. You will have this same teacher for the next three years, which really helps you get to know this teacher really well!
Transportation, how do I get to school?
Transportation. Buses will be running on our normal bus schedule. Press this Link For Bus Route INFO.
Student Drop Off: if you get dropped off it is important (especially with construction and with the new Elementary school now on site) that you drop your student off in the correct parking lot. See the image below.
What should I wear the first day?
- We will be outside quite a bit, so be prepared for the weather.
- Please meet dress code:
- Undergarments must be covered at all times.
- Clothing will cover torso, midriff, chest, and backside, and have sleeves or straps;
- Drawings, tattoos, and accessories that display or promote negative messages (such as drug, gang, weapon, alcohol or drug, etc) are not permitted.
- Skirts, shorts, and holes in jeans/pants must not be any higher than the middle of the thigh
At Fife We Say Hello!
Before COVID the greeting would have been accompanied by a hand shake or fist bump, while that will look different, you will still be welcomed each day as you enter school and as you arrive at each class. Do your part and look people in the eye and say hi!
Will I get a copy of my schedule?
