Wearing the school’s colors – orange and black – a team of helpful students were on the South Pasadena High School campus Tuesday morning, lending a hand, easing, perhaps, the anxiety of incoming freshmen getting a handle on their new educational environment.
Recognizing that being the top dog at the middle school, then suddenly going back to the bottom rung as a 9th grader in a new setting can be difficult, SPHS officials make the transition as simple and painless as possible by providing support from those vested in making campus life the best it can be.
Like the Helpful Honda Guy, South Pasadena High has its own caring personnel in the folks wearing the colorful ASB jackets and shirts, and seemingly always ready with a smile.
On Tuesday, they were out in force, answering questions about high school course studies, taking the Class of 2022 on campus tours and answering a bevy of questions.
It seemed to work as no hands were raised following one tour when one ASB leader asked “Any questions?”
Enough said. Confident he had done his task well, the ASB student clutched his hands and quietly said, “perfect, let’s move on.”
…and make life easier for freshmen students at South Pasadena High School.
