• Kickoff for freshmen will be Aug. 23 and 24. This year’s freshman class is invited to the first ever Falcon PRIDE Day. Falcon PRIDE Day is an event designed specifically for incoming freshmen students as a “bridging” into high school. Students will visit five stations throughout the day, each representing SRHS Falcon PRIDE; Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, Excellence. While at these stations, students will have the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the exemplary upperclassmen students and make their first memories together at SRHS. Falcon PRIDE day is Monday, Aug. 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. On Tuesday, Aug. 24 from 8 to 11 a.m., freshman students will attend the traditional Kickoff event to pick up their books, purchase items, etc. Due to scheduling conflicts, freshman students will not take their picture or pick up their school ID during the Kickoff event. Students will have an opportunity to take their picture and receive their school ID the second week of September.
