Orientation for all grade 8 students will be held on August 26 at 5:30 p.m. and for all grade 7 students at 6:45 p.m. in the William L. Dwyer Gymnasium at Ogdensburg Free Academy.
Parents, guardians, and students will receive information on Academics, Schooltool, scheduling, the school lunch program and other District policies and activities. Students who are accompanied by an adult may also pick up their schedule for the school year. Students will have the opportunity to locate classrooms, practice opening lockers, and meet teachers. Refreshments will be served in the Gymnasium following orientation.
Ogdensburg Free Academy continues to participate in a nationwide transition program that is designed to both welcome and support your 7th grader. This program, called the WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) also assigns an 8th grade student who is a good role model and positive leader to help them to achieve success in their first year at OFA. The Grade 8 WEB Leaders will be on hand to meet and welcome all 7th Grade students to Ogdensburg Free Academy.
The faculty, staff, and administration are enthusiastically looking forward to a successful school year filled with academic opportunities and extracurricular activities.
