Students from across New Jersey and around the world converged on PRISMS' Albemarle campus for the first of two orientation days. Students and faculty were busy getting to know one another, preparing for a successful year, and having fun. Each day was anchored with opening remarks from Principal Matt Pearce and a roll call of all administrators, faculty, students, and staff. Small advisory sessions and workshops specific to every grade level covered everything from leadership and wellness to clubs and laptops. Parents new and old gathered for a casual reception while students had fun with Field Day activities, icebreakers, and a scavenger hunt. Orientation ended with Capture the Flag among four Houses, Albemarle, Lambert, Ettl, and Hobler, leaving everyone an energetic and memorable beginning of a new school year!
