Hello incoming freshmen!
Hello incoming freshmen!
I cannot wait for all of you to join the FCHS community next year! I know it can be nerve-racking to come into a new school, but I can assure each and every one of you that you will be able to grow and succeed in high school. I want to share some advice with you that I wish that I had known when I came into FCHS. First of all, and most importantly, build up your self-confidence! You will be able to find great friends here, but to be able to do this it is important to have confidence in yourself. High school is all about preparing yourself for the next steps in life, and learning more about yourself. I also suggest that you stay organized! This concept is different for everyone, so whether you feel accomplished by writing down your homework in a planner and being able to cross it off when you finish it, or color coding all of your notes in a way that makes sense to you, find an organizational tactic that makes you feel successful. It is important to remember that while you will have a fun experience in high school, going to class and learning the material provided is essential. Another important concept to understand before joining FCHS is that it is best to get as involved as possible. Whether that means joining a club that sounds interesting to you, or playing a sport that you’ve always wanted to, joining these activities will not only be fun, but it will introduce you to new friends around school. Fort Collins High School is a large school with many students, which can be very intimidating! Through classes and activities, you will start to meet new people, and see more familiar faces in the busy hallways. Last but not least, have fun! Don’t be embarrassed to cheer loudly at football games, or dress up crazy for spirit days. You will only have four years of high school, so live to the fullest, without having any regrets. I cannot wait to meet all of you, see you in the fall!
Welcome to freshman year at Collins! You have a lot to learn in your next four years and I think above all it’s important to be open to trying new things, making new friends, and stepping outside of your comfort zone. Your high school experience is what you make of it, and there will always be people to help and support you.
Hey lambkins! Something I wish I knew going into my freshman year was that we are all in this together. The transition might be scary, but all of your peers are right there with you. Your teachers all want to see you succeed and are here to help you along the way. Although it’s not like High School Musical, Collins has so many ways for you to get involved and try something new.
We will see you soon!
