The first day of school is Wednesday, August 24; but for our new students and families it really begins on Monday, August 22. August 22 is the New Student Orientation from 5:30-8:30 PM. This event is designed to prepare new students and parents for the Mayer Lutheran experience. The evening allows students and parents to meet faculty and staff. Students are able to find classrooms, get lockers set-up, and begin getting to know their new classmates. Parents participate in a mini-course schedule and receive information about the courses their students are taking. The event concludes with a “what you need to know as new students and parents” session.
