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 surroundings for incoming freshmen; Junior-Senior High School Principal, Mr. Burgess Ovitt and faculty have coordinated a "NEW BEGINNINGS DAY" on Thursday, August 24th, 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. The teamwork among parents, guardians, teachers and administrators, will provide an environment with high expectations for all of our students. All ninth grade students and their parents/guardians are encouraged to join us on Thursday, August 24th, at 6:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium!
