More than 200 new Heights High students attended the school's New Student Inauguration on Aug. 9. The full-day event featured workshops on how to develop organizational skills; recognizing how one perceives others; the value of being open to new experiences and people; how to use social media in a positive way; how to build strong, healthy relationships; and the effects of bullying.

The Reading and R.A.M.M. (Recording Arts Music & Media) organization led the workshops, and Heights High staff and student council volunteers helped guide the new students around the building.

Students also toured the school, ate lunch in the cafeteria, received their course schedules and had their school ID pictures taken.

All Heights High students will return on Aug. 22, to start a final year in the school’s temporary University Heights location. Students will return to a renovated Heights High at the corner of Cedar and Lee roads in the fall of 2017.
