New Student Breakfast: Most schools attempt to recognize new students at the beginning of the school year, but with semesters there is also a second major entry point to school. At the beginning of second semester, invite the new students and their parents to a welcome breakfast. They can meet administration, student council students, and other new families. This helps to ease their transition into a new school during the middle of the year. The new students are then matched with a buddy from the student leadership team who helps to integrate them into a school that is already underway. The buddy can find out about their interests and let them know about the sports and activities that occur in second semester.
