The countdown to the first day of school has started, and for kids transitioning to a new school, it can be agony.

 

H.D. Weddel, Bend High Principal, says they have a "culture" at Bend High where  upperclassmen are taught to nurture the "new" kids that look a little lost.  “We call it part of the "Long Blue Line" at Bend High School and you're proud of the ones coming behind you because they're the next generation. So, in part, I think as teachers, administrators, staff members, we're looking for that.  Our ears are up."

 

Weddel says the first day of school is for freshmen alone, so they can get a feel for the school.  He says that it's also very important for parents to encourage their kids to get involved in activities and that helps kids feel more comfortable, that they "belong."

 

You can hear more about dealing with a students anxiety of entering a new school for the first time, as we feature a lengthy discussion on Tuesday’s “Take Five.”
