Fox Creek High School held their registration event for incoming freshman to help spark interest in the newly finished school.
Assistant principal Joshua Trahan spoke to students and parents about different things offered for the students. Although the school is relatively new to the area, the faculty have high hopes for what they hope to offer.
“This event was held to meet all the freshman that are coming,” Trahan said. “We have no idea who’s going to come through our doors because we are a school of choice. This was as beneficial for us as it was to the parents.”
The faculty had a chance to see who’s coming, and the students and parents had an opportunity to ask what the school is going to provide and get a feel for the school.
The incoming students are looking forward to starting class, according to Trahan, and the faculty and staff are looking forward to what is to come.
Current student Vanesa Boulware,16, says she loves Fox Creek and the atmosphere it provides. “Everyone gets along here,” Bouleware said. “You never hear about one person talking about another. It is very family oriented. It’s a small school, but it’s a great school.”
“The children that are coming are excited about Fox Creek,” Trahan said. “The last three years in a row, we’ve been fortunate enough to do well on the end of the year school report card. It shows that our school has met some excellent standards as far as academics go.”
He said he hopes they will be able to continue this and add on to the facility to enhance the overall experience for students.
“We’d like to see them be the first to graduate from the high school with a gym,” Trahan said. “They may even graduate in their own gymnasium. They’re gonna have to survive a year where things are a little tight, but they can look forward to a lot of neat things.”
