T-Camp – (includes a Parent Component)
T-camp is a way to get our incoming transfer students to meet new people and get acquainted with their surroundings before the first day of school. In order to guide students through this transition, the Concordia Student Council prepares a time for students to engage their surroundings, meet new people, and just have fun in an effort to ease the stress of the new school year. Upperclassmen assist throughout the event so the transfers can see who the leaders at our school are and who they can ask if they have questions about the daily routines at Concordia. This event also gives our Guidance Department an opportunity to give information to the parents so they too can learn a little about “life at Concordia.”
The Guidance Department sets aside various lunch dates to meet with all the transfers in order to celebrate the joys and acknowledge the struggles that come with moving to a new school.
The Guidance Department holds a Parent Information Night for each grade level. Parents will learn how CLHS challenges students to consider “the Future”: the Future STARTS TODAY not tomorrow – Pope John Paul II. Topics include: tools to transition effectively to CLHS, building a college résumé, taking standardized tests, taking career and personality assessments, and an introduction to Naviance
, Family Connection.
