(JUNE 2022)—Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School held an orientation for incoming third-graders from Northwest Elementary School to familiarize the students with the campus prior to the start of the 2022-2023 school year. Park Avenue School Counselor Kimberly Balducci presented a slide show about the school. The slide show introduced students to school programs, events, and what to expect next year.

“Transitioning into a new school can be really challenging for students,” said Ms. Balducci. “Orientations like this allow the incoming students to become familiar with the school and hopefully lessen some of the stress they might be feeling about entering a new environment.”

The soon-to-be Memorial students were able to meet some of the current Memorial third graders who spoke about their favorite activities and gave them some words of wisdom. The second-graders were then allowed to ask questions. Their trip ended with a school tour guided by Park Avenue students.
