Learning for lives of purpose
A number of activities are in place to help new students and their families with the transition to the Dock community.
In late summer, a New Student Social is planned by school staff and student leaders. The evening includes games, snacks and time to get to know new classmates and some returning students. Parents are also invited to spend time visiting with other new parents.
This is an evening event in late August to welcome new families to Christopher Dock. After a light meal and a bit of school information, students and their parents have the opportunity to walk through the daily schedule, find classroom locations and lockers, and meet the teachers. Guidance staff is also available to make schedule adjustments.
Ninth grade students gather as an entire class shortly after school begins for a day of fun, fellowship, and learning. The orientation provides a time for students to become acquainted and also allows time for reflection and worship. Class business and important school information is covered during this time as the students are introduced in a more personal way to many of their teachers and advisors.
During the September PTF meeting, all Dock parents are invited to join teachers for a light meal together. Following the meal, parents follow their child's schedule in a condensed version of the school day. Teachers give mini-lessons and information about their courses. Parents enjoy the chance to meet teachers, learn about classes, and get to know other parents.
