Beginning at 7:50 AM, students will rotate through their schedules with 7th period ending at 11:50 AM. Topics of discussion will include schedules, lunches, evacuation procedures, and highlights from the student code of conduct. Next students will be taken on a tour of the building and introduced to cafeteria procedures. After some help and practice opening lockers, 7th graders will learn how to use Skyward and how Wapiti do during dear. We will end the day in the auditorium, welcoming all new 7th graders to Elk Ridge, and making everyone feel more confident about our first day of school.
