BHS Transition: One Up
**One-Up is a week-long intensive program with the purpose of helping students to gain a better understanding of the culture of Brookline High School and to help smooth the transition from 8th grade to freshman year. The course will consist of a mixture of class discussions, activities, and role-playing that will familiarize students with BHS culture. Students learn the geography of BHS through tours and scavenger hunts. Students will review their class schedules and become familiar with the academic and social support that BHS offers. A fun, informative week for all!**

NEW FAMILY WELCOME POINT PERSON:
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
