Transfer Student Orientation Program


    Who:  For sophomores, juniors, and seniors who registered during spring or summer.  (Freshmen should attend Warrior Welcome, the Freshman Orientation Program, on August 14th.) 

    Why:  To welcome and provide orientation for all transfer students to Deerfield High School.  With the aid of the Peer Helpers, students will receive personal assistance throughout the duration of this program.  New students will receive their individual schedules for the year, have a chance to complete a template for their daily schedule, and go on a tour.  Students will also be able to go to the bookstore to pick up books and receive a chromebook.  They will also meet a panel of administrators about programs and services available in the school.  For many of the students, this will be their first opportunity to come to the high school and meet a small group of welcoming students before the first day of school. 

    When:  Friday, August 11, 2:00-3:00 p.m.

    Where:  CCRC (I-100)

    We invite you to participate in Warrior Welcome, our Freshman Orientation Program, on Monday, August 14th, 6:00-8:00pm.  Parents/guardians will have an opportunity to meet counselors, department representatives, and administrators to hear about our school.



    Who:  All transfer students

    Why:  To provide continued support for all transfer students to Deerfield High School.  Led by counselors.

    All transfer students will be invited to participate in a transfer student group that is designed to give students an opportunity to get to know one another and help them transition into their new environment.  The group meets quarterly.  A variety of topics are covered (such as school events, DHS graduation requirements, and the registration process).  Students will also have the opportunity to meet former transfer students.

    When:  Once a quarter.  Students will receive invitations with details, so there is no need to sign up for the group in advance.

    Where: D-101
