Freshman Orientation...A Day of Transition

What a fantastic day at Great Oaks for the Freshman Orientation.  Over 30 Link Crew leaders (juniors and seniors) put on a great event, hopefully putting some freshmen at ease and helping them understand the inner workings of IVC High School.

In the morning, the freshmen were led through a series of team-building activities.  Each activity had a specific purpose. They included:

Duct Tape Stretcher - teams had to construct a stretcher to transport their "injured" teammate.
Trustwalk - Members of team were blindfolded while one sighted member led them on a walk through the camp.
Helium Stick - A challenging activity requiring the team to work together to lower a stick to the ground.
Duct Tape Transport - Teams had to create a device to transport water from the lake to a bucket roughly 50 yards away.
Mousetrap Minefield - Blindfolded team members are guided through a maze of mousetraps.

The awesome Chillicothe Police Department came out and grilled hot dogs for lunch.  After lunch, students rotated to four different 20 minute seminars during which they heard about the following topics:

Seminar 1 - Reading a Schedule, Good Start, Agenda
Seminar 2 - Getting Involved, Managing Everything
Seminar 3 - Brand New Start, Rules, Who’s Who at IVC
Seminar 4 - Fitting In Story, Bullying, Reaching Out for Help
