Class of 2019,

Congratulations on your academic achievements in your current school and welcome to Kennesaw Mountain High School. We are looking forward to you joining the Kennesaw Mountain family. This is an incredible place to enhance your academic skills and school involvement. In order to help you get prepared for high school, we have designed several opportunities for you to visit our school and talk with teachers, administrators, and students. You are welcome to attend as many activities as you like.

The Mustang Way is a great way to learn about our school. This is a half-day seminar presented by our student leaders about the expectations of the school, the teachers, and the student body. This is your opportunity to talk with current students and ask questions to get ready for the best time of your life. This program is for students only and has had a positive influence on previous freshmen adjusting to high school.

The Mustang Way will be July 22 or July 23 from 8am until noon. You will get to choose which day is convenient for you. To sign up please e-mail Mr. Richardson the day you would like to participate. The e-mail address is william.richardson@cobbk12.org

Another great opportunity is freshmen orientation where you and your parents will have an opportunity to meet the staff and get valuable information to start school. Freshmen orientation will be Thursday July 30, 10am -11:30pm. This is the most important meeting for our future Mustangs to attend with their parents. Spirit Wear will be sold and you can pick up your books.

Before school starts, we will provide one more day for you and your parents to visit the school and walk around to locate your classes. On Sunday, August 2nd, from 2pm until 3:30 pm, you can make one more visit to the school to get those last minute questions answered prior to the big day. The teachers will not be available; however, Mane Link officers will be here to assist you.

For further information and updates please see our website at www.Cobbk12.org, click on high schools, and then click on Kennesaw Mountain High.

If we could give you one piece of advice it would be to get involved with as many activities as possible at this school. We have something for everyone. When you attend your Mustang Way classes, we will show you how to get connected and to succeed at Kennesaw Mountain High.
