As part of the SEL Schools’ deliberate desire to make the transition between building levels smooth, functional and full of happiness and Arc pride, more than 30 incoming Brush High School freshman recently participated in a week-long opportunity to get to know their new building. For approximately one week during the summer, a select group of students who primarily had just graduated from Memorial Junior High School had the opportunity to spend a few hours each day at Brush High School with teachers of core subject areas. Their time was spent performing meaningful activities, learning about what the course load and requirements will involve and getting to know these teachers. The week culminated with a lunch at Wildwood Reservation in the Cleveland Metro Parks, and where students showcased a “Vision Board” that they created during the week which boldly shares what they intend their futures to hold. Some shared about their future career paths while others proudly proclaimed what high profile academic institutions they plan to attend in the future. In all, the incoming freshman experience was designed to instill comfort during this transition and is expected to enlarge in participation in the future. Remember, school starts for students on Thursday, August 15, 2019. Thank you for your continued support, and as always, GO ARCS!
