“We’re always looking to improve the registration process. One of the tilings that we did was have packet pickup early, so parents and students could get them tilled out ahead of time,” MacRoberts said. “We also moved the stations so lint's didn't extend outside in the heat.”
The high school also added
a Thursday evening registration period for parents and students who had work or other obligations during the day.
“We had registration available until 8 p.m., which allowed about Hit) kids to register who otherwise wouldn’t have,” MacRoberts said.
Mob Rodriguez, NHI IS principal, said the school had many mechanisms in place to help ease the transition from eighth grade to high school.
During the spring of the eighth-grade year, students are brought to the high school to learn about their future cam
pus. Before school starts in August, all freshmen are encouraged to attend “Fish Camp” — a freshman orientation day hosted by the student council.
“Its run by student council upperclassmen and its basically an A-Z tour on what to expect the first day.” Rodriguez said. “The biggest source of anxiety is being in a new building surrounded by new people. This helps ease a lot of that.”

THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE...
aren’t so simple when you’re obese.
Remember when you could wear regular shoes and tie them? Or when you could get on the floor and play with the kids? Or wear blue jeans like everyone else?
It can be that way again. And we can help. Obesity can be a biologically-based disease, and is the second leading cause of preventable death in the country.
And medical attention can correct the problem. Take the first step: sign up for a free seminar at Guadalupe Valley Hospital. You’ll learn all about our procedure and programs customized for your needs. Check out our website or give us a call today. We help make life a little simpler.
