Hundreds attend Bobcat University

North Habersham Middle School summer orientation a “huge success” 

Rising sixth graders from four Habersham County elementary schools got a chance to meet each other and their new teachers at North Habersham Middle School this past weekend.

Approximately 110 students and well over 100 parents, grandparents and guardians attended the first ever Bobcat University on July 30th.

NHMS Assistant Principal Tracy Allison says it was “a huge success!”

Student groups rotated through teacher led fun activities and team building activities in an effort to allow students to get to know their teachers and new classmates.

Parents rotated through three informational sessions led by schools administrators, academic coaches, and school counselors and also participated in a tour of school facilities.

The system transportation department was on hand to provide information about bus routes and transfers. In addition, students were able to purchase and practice opening lockers, pay for lunch in advance, and practice going from class to class.

Allison says the school received “much positive feedback” from participants. NHMS now plans to make it an annual event.
