Freshman Orientation & Arena Check-In, 2022

Freshman Arena Check-In will be Tuesday, August 16th.  
 
Freshman Arena Check-In is a day to introduce freshman students and parents to M-A before the first day of school. Incoming 9th graders will enjoy a campus tour led by current M-A Leadership students while parents have the option to attend a Foundation for the Future Welcome Back Coffee in the PAC (see below).  Students will also join their parents to go through Arena Check-In, where they will have their school photo taken, pick up their photo ID; get information about our bell schedule, transportation, and other essentials; pick up technology; and purchase Bear Wear and other items.  
 
This year, students and parents will come to campus in two different time slots.  Half of the students in each slot will begin their day on campus with a tour, while the other will begin with Arena Check-In, with the two groups switching tasks after 45 minutes. All students will start their day by checking in at the I-Wing next to Coach Parks field, where they will receive their group assignments, class schedules, and other info.  
 
The timing is as follows:
 
9:00 to 10:45: Last names A-L   
 
11:00 to 12:45: Last names M-Z 
 
More information is available in this handout, which you also should have received in your welcome mailer.
