Class of 2019: We are Trojan Strong
J.P. Taravella welcomed members of the class of 2019 to the Trojan family with its annual Freshmen Bootcamp yesterday. More than 380 students trickled in the doors starting at 8 a.m. to take a tour of campus, meet and greet their future administrators, and plan how they can make the most of their high school career.
“They’re seeing the school more as they’re learning all the rules, so it’s more hands-on learning,” said Jennifer Letizia, history teacher and administrative assistant.
Students were lead by Student Government guides to important locations all over campus; teachers, coaches, and student officers from most of the school’s sports and clubs met them at each station, answered questions, and held contests.
In May, Letizia began organizing the event with the help of Madison Rabun, reading teacher. Letizia and Rabun said they wanted a more interactive day, but more importantly, something students could enjoy and remember. Both women said yesterday’s success encouraged them have the event run the same way next year.
Students that volunteered to work the event were also pleased with how the day turned out. Girls lacrosse said they had more girls than ever before sign up for tryouts in spring; clubs like Interact were happy to have more volunteers for their service projects that will begin in September. Angelo Salerno, JPTV vice president, said he liked how it got students to be more comfortable doing things outside their comfort zone, like the chants his station made for the freshman class to have at pep rallies.
“Some students gave some really good chants and were more interactive than when they came in; it definitely opened kids up,” said Salerno.
