From June 21 to June 23, Calgary Academy welcomed over 100 new families to the school community for the annual New Family Orientation. COVID-19 may have altered the event this year, but it did not take away from the fun!
CA’s school mascot Scorcher made a special appearance to take photos and play games with students and their families. To help everyone stay cool in the heat, food trucks handed out delicious frozen treats. The week was full of making memories in the sun!
“The goal of the event was to get students enthusiastic about the school year and to ease the transition to a new school. We loved seeing our new students’ smiling faces and the families taking the time to connect with one another,” said Annick Donde, Admissions Associate.
Changing schools can be intimidating but New Family Orientation helps students meet teachers and fellow classmates before stepping foot into the classroom. The Admissions team, alongside teaching staff, loved getting to know both students and their families before the school year begins.
“The weather was beautiful, parents exchanged phone numbers and many of them made plans to connect over the summer. The new students are eager and excited to join our school,” said Irina Dart, Director of Admissions.”
Thank you to those who joined the New Welcome Orientation, and we can’t wait to see you again in the fall.
