Telstar Freshmen Academy
Open House Informational Meeting
Monday, August 3, 2015
On Monday night, we opened the doors to the Harvest for Health barn at Bryant Pond to welcome our incoming 9th graders and their parents at an Open House Informational Meeting! Ryder Scott, the director of UMaine 4-H Camp and Learning Centers, and Cheryl Lang, the principal of Telstar High School, opened the event with a warm welcome and introductions! We then gave a brief overview of the program, led a tour of the grounds, and ended in the Lakeside Lodge with a video of last year's reflections! Approximately 25 ninth graders and their parents attended this event! They asked some great questions and enthusiastically commented on the learning spaces! On hand to speak about the program and answer questions were the team of freshmen teachers: Kelly Dole, Doug Bennett, and Tara Pocock. This is the just beginning of many more exciting interactions with the freshmen team!
