Becoming One of Us

During this day, freshmen will meet in homeroom, complete paperwork, tour the building, receive their schedule, receive an overview of the technology available to them at North, attend an assembly with the principal and, to cap off the day, participate in a pep rally. Freshmen Mentors, upper-classman who have been trained to assist in the orientation of freshmen, are with the students all day providing insight into the daily activities at Omaha North High Magnet Center.
