You can look at pictures or watch the video, but when it comes to Thursday's North Farmington High "New to North" freshman orientation, you really had to be there.
That's one of the messages teacher Kevin Ozar got across to students who participated in the rousing day of activities. He said there are three kinds of students: the people who make things happen, the people who watch things happen, and those who say "what happened"?
"At some point in the next four years, jump in," Ozar said. "High school is one of those 'had to be there' moments."
After a morning of fun activities, students picked up their schedules and met the Link Crew, a group of older students who helped organize the orientation and will serve as their mentors during the year. Principal Joe Greene also stopped by to greet students and thank them for attending.
"It's gonna be a great year to be a Raider," he said.
