Lakeview Jr./Sr. High School held its annual Transition Day on May 27. This event is held for incoming 7th grade students from Fairview Alpha and incoming high school students from both Goldonna Elementary and Lakeview Jr. High School to introduce them to all of the opportunities available to them when they transition to the next level of their education.
Organization and club sponsors as well as coaches from 10 different sports were on hand with information about their co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Lakeview students have a variety of options to choose from to enhance their junior high and high school careers. Air Force JROTC, Youth Volunteer Corps, BETA, National Honor Society, FFA, 4-H, Yearbook, Culinary Arts, Band and a host of sports including basketball, baseball, football, softball, track, power lifting, cheer, and golf are just some of the opportunities afforded to Lakeview students.
The event began with our Color Guard posting the colors, followed by the event coordinator, Mrs. Wynn, setting expectations. Principal William Hymes welcomed everyone and spoke about the benefits of seizing every opportunity and cherishing every moment because in the blink of an eye high school is over. He then introduced Senior Emma Hatten to give a student’s perspective of high school life. Students were divided into small groups to tour the school with peer leaders. When they returned to the gym, the students enjoyed some snacks and visited the booths set up in the gym to learn more about Lakeview life.
Thank you to Mrs. Wynn, JROTC, the band, the cheer team, Fairview, Goldonna Elementary, and all of the student leaders for making our Transition Day a tremendous success. We are always better when we work together! #GoGators
