LAUNCH Freshman 2020 Participation RSVP
We are excited to host your student on campus for LAUNCH on August 17th from 11:30 to 5:30pm. This day is designed to help your freshman student start well at Wheaton Academy as we discuss details for the first day of school, jumpstart their mentorship with Project IX seniors, and establish friendships with their peers. As a reminder, this LAUNCH experience is in place of our Freshman Retreat--the retreat has been postponed for the time-being.
To help us prepare, we ask that you complete this RSVP survey to confirm your student’s involvement in the day, as well other important planning details. We ask that you complete this survey by August 11th.
Below is the schedule for the day:
- 11:30 - 12:15pm: Provided lunch on the Performance Trust Field in Project IX groups
- 12:30 - 4:30pm: 8 small-group session rotations to train freshman students on: school culture, Kingdom Community, first day of school details, UNITE plan expectations, and several opportunities to make connections with their peers and Project IX seniors
- 4:30-5:00pm: Time of reflection, prayer, and worship
- 5:00-5:30pm: Schedule distribution, ID distribution, and optional campus tours begin
NOTE: Freshman parents who "opted in" to the book program at Wheaton Academy are welcome to pick up their students' books from 10:30-12:00 on Monday, August 17th in the Commons of the Academic Building.
On the day of LAUNCH, we do ask that your student brings a mask with them to wear for the day. Additionally, we suggest students wear comfortable clothes--t-shirts, shorts, etc. as we will be both indoor and outdoor. The dress code for the day is more casual than the school day expectations. Finally, we do ask parents to complete the self-certification on the Magnus APP with their student by 10:30am on the 17th. For more information about this process, visit this webpage:
Additionally, we invite parents to join us for a brief get-together from 11:00-12:30 on August 17th by the reflection pond outside of Academy Hall. We will provide light food, outdoor space, and an opportunity for parents to get to know each other after you drop off your freshman student at LAUNCH. If you would like to participate in this get-together, we ask that you RSVP on this survey link so we can plan accordingly.
If you have any questions, please let us know. We look forward to your student’s start at Wheaton Academy!
