Seventh Grade Students, New Students Pack Jr-Sr High School at Locker Night

The hallways of Cato-Meridian Junior-Senior High School were buzzing with excitement at the school's first-ever Locker Night & Open House as students searched for their new lockers and classrooms. The event was open to all seventh grade students, as well as any students who were new to the District and those who were all-virtual last year.

The night began in the gymnasium, where students received their class schedules, locker information, and maps of the school. Students and their families remained in the gymnasium as Junior-Senior High School Principal Amy Molloy welcomed them to the building.

"I already feel extremely connected to this class because this will be your first year at the Junior-Senior High School, and it will actually be my first full year here as well," Molloy said to the students. "I think that's really special."

Molloy then introduced current student council members, who provided tips for success at the Junior-Senior High School. They recommended getting involved in extracurricular activities, doing homework as soon as possible, going to teachers for help, walking -not running- in the hallways, and actively participating in gym class.

Students were also introduced to staff who were in attendance, and then walked through the hallways to find their lockers and classes.

At the end of the evening, students and their families enjoyed a brief reception in the library.
