The Saugerties Junior High School held their Grade 7 Orientation night on August 24. This event afforded students an opportunity to tour the building and classrooms, meet teachers and staff, and receive information about routines and schedules. Students were broken into small groups and learned the importance of teamwork through different hands-on-projects. Orientation concluded with a parent meeting in the auditorium. The principal, Ginger Vail, is looking forward to a tremendous school year where students will find a sense of pride and belonging within the school community as they strive for academic excellence.
