Principal provides tips to greater Lansing students starting high school
It was an exciting week from Okemos, Michigan, this week as NexTech Lansing started the new school year with Freshman Boost Camp Monday August 12 through today, August 16. At 12:15 p.m. daily on NexTech High School of Lansing’s Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/NexTechHighLansing/) they held the sessions to support those incoming freshmen.
Freshman Boost Camp provides tips for incoming freshman from greater Lansing and beyond on how to survive and thrive in high school. NexTech High School of Lansing Principal Jamie DeWitt gave students advice, direct them to resources and answer questions students or parents may have, with a dash of humor and a dose of reality-check thrown in.
"Positive preparation is key for high school freshman to make a successful transition," said DeWitt. "It can be scary, intimidating and just a lot for students to deal with. I want to help take away some of that anxiety and ensure students have access to the tools and information that will help them succeed throughout their high school career."
DeWitt wants all students, not just those starting at NexTech High School, to learn and advance in school while experiencing a fun and rewarding school year. Students will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of topics such as creating a plan for success, learning and understanding how to set up a workspace, managing life and more.
Current and incoming students, families and interested community members are invited to tune in to NexTech’s Facebook and Instagram Live every day, or watch the videos after.
