5 Things You Need To Know Today: August 26

Back-to-school edition: Freshman orientation at Framingham High School today.

5 Things You Need To Know Today: August 26

1.​ Today is the first day of school for freshman at Framingham High. (The official first day of school is tomorrow, Aug. 27 for students in grades 1-12.)

There is a transition day at Framingham High School today for freshman and new students in grades 10-12.

Freshman will report to the auditorium this morning, where they will listen to statements from new Framingham High Principal Adam Goldberg and Class of 2018 Vice Principal Mr. Albright. Almost 100 seniors will help Freshman get acquainted with Framingham High today. Students will meet with their homeroom teacher and guidance counselor too. They will be dismissed to buses at 10:45 a.m.

This year, there is a special orientation for students new to Framingham High today. The orientation includes an assembly, breakout sessions, tours by upperclass students and a Q&A session.

​2. Cameron Middle School is inviting all incoming grade 6 students and their families to tour the school today from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. There will not be a formal presentation by Principal Michelle Melick, but the principal and Vice Principal Ian Charles will be available for questions. Tours will be conducted by students in grades 7 & 8.

​3. Today is supply drop-off day at the Christa McAuliffe Charter School in Framingham. The regional middle school for students in grades 6-8 holds a supply drop-off day, before the first day of school, to make the start of the school year easier for students. They get a chance to meet their crew leaders, and find out the location of their crew so that they know where to go on the first day of school. Students with a last name with the initial A-L are from 10 to 10:45 a.m. and students with a last name with the initial M-Z are from 11 to 11:45 a.m.

4. Yesterday, Fuller Middle School held tours and an ice cream social for incoming sixth grade students. Click here for a slideshow of photos.

5. Tomorrow is the first day of school for Framingham Public Schools students in grades 1-12.

The greatest danger involving school buses isn’t riding a bus: it’s the school bus stop. Make certain there’s six feet (three big steps) between your child and the curb. Teach your child about the “danger zone” – 10 feet in front of, behind, and on each side of the bus. Click here for more safety tips.
