Lion Camp/Orientation
Lion

Dear New Kent Lion Families,


We are so excited to start this upcoming school year, and we are preparing for 2019-2020 to be the best year yet! As the summer comes to a close, we want to share some important dates and information with you all. 


For our 6th grade students, our Lion Camp will be held  on August 23rd from 8-11am. This student only event will start in the NKMS cafeteria. It is an opportunity for students to learn about life at the middle school, practice their locker combinations, tour the school, meet teachers, attend mini sessions and ask any questions they may have as they begin their transition.  Don’t worry! We are all here to help! Students who are not riding the activity buses home will participate in parent pickup by the auditorium exits at 11:00am. 


We will also host an open house on August 28th for both parents/guardians and students. 6th grade families can come between 8:30-10:30am, 7th grade is from 11:30-1pm, and 8th grade is 2-3:30pm. This will be a time where the students can pick up their schedules and tour the building to meet their teachers and become acclimated to their schedule. Parents will also be able to pay fees and sign up for PowerSchool, Schoology, car riders, and Watch D.O.G.S.  If your student is new to New Kent Middle School this year, please arrive at the start time of your grade level for a small welcome orientation in the auditorium.


Schedules will not be available until August 28th.   If you are not able to attend the Lion Camp or open house event, schedules will still be available for pick up the remainder of the week between 8am-4pm.  We will ensure that any student who has not yet received their schedule prior to school starting, can pick it up on the first day of school in the school counseling office.  


We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon and having a wonderful first day! 


Sincerely,


Your School Counseling Team
