Freshman Orientation Day at MHS

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Ok­_Freshman at MacArthur High School will know just what to expect when they head back to school.

At orientation, Wednesday, they learned all about their classes, the dress code rules and how the cafeteria works.

Freshman counselor Alicia Brierton hoped the day would erase any fears the students had about the first day.

"It was to get them acclimated to the school day, to make sure that they make it to their schedule without being late," Brierton said.

One student said she was ready for the challenge.  "I'm really excited maybe a little bit of nervousness just because it's new but I'm excited -- new experiences new opportunities," said Ashley Urbanski.

MacArthur has about 270 freshman students enrolled this year, which is average for the school.  About 10% have signed up for the student-to-student program to help each other out.
