We are all very excited about the upcoming school year at Hadley-Luzerne.  The transition into ninth grade will be a great opportunity for each student.  In order to ease the anxiety of the new surroundings for incoming freshmen; High School Principal, Mr. Beecher Baker and staff have coordinated a “NEW BEGINNINGS DAY” on Thursday, August 29th, at 6:00 p.m.  All entering ninth grade students and their parents are invited to attend this very important orientation.  It is important that everyone will get to know each other and develop a feeling that school will be a place where we have high expectations for academic success and people who care!  A tour of the building will be optional and free and reduced lunch applications will be available.  We have received many favorable responses regarding this important evening.  Through teamwork among parents, teachers, and administrators, we can provide teaching for learning in a humanistic environment with high expectations of success for all students.  See you on Thursday August 29th, at 6:00 p.m. in the high school cafeteria!
