2019 Orientation Letter

Dear Student/Guardian:

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Shaker High School. In order to make your adjustment to the high school more comfortable, the counseling department has planned an orientation program. The program will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019 from 9:30 –11:30 a.m. In addition to the student’s attendance, we would also be happy to have parents and/or guardians attend.

The program for parents/guardians will begin with a welcome in the auditorium by Mr. Richard Murphy, Principal, Mr. Brian Spofford, Taft Hall Principal, Mrs. Crystal Fox, LaFollette Hall Principal, Mr. Garrett Couture, LaFollette Dean and Mrs. Lauren Sheeler, Taft Dean. The formal introduction will then be followed by a question and answer period.
