Freshmen 101

Melanie Eszter and Margo Dulny

  • East offers four lunch periods.
  • If you have last lunch you might find it a good idea to bring a snack to eat earlier in the day.
  • You eat lunch with your fifth hour class, so start making some friends on the first day.
  • Your lunch might change if your schedule does.
  • Microwaves are available to heat up your food if needed.
  • Also if you forget your card at home, don’t

worry, the lunch ladies can just look you up by your last name so you do not have to wait until everyone else gets their lunch.


Navigating the Hallways

  • When walking through the hallways, follow the system of walking on the right side like a road.
  • Whatever you do, DO NOT STOP in the

hallway. You might cause a catastrophic traffic jam.

  • You will be able to choose your own locker,

but most students carry around their backpack and

lunch box to every class.
