For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, Lambert hosted an event on April 25 for incoming freshmen to introduce them to the various sports and extracurriculars at our school. The Freshman Connectivity Night provided an opportunity for graduating eighth graders to come and walk around Lambert’s campus while checking in at booths hosted by various clubs and sports. 

Although a similar event was hosted pre-pandemic, this year’s Freshman Connectivity Night brought along some changes to reflect Lambert’s changing size and make the event more accessible for everyone involved.

“Several years back, they did something similar; however, it was on a weekend – we decided to do it on a weeknight because families are usually super busy on the weekend,” Assistant Principal Mrs. Fowler explained. “We also hosted it in the cafeteria, so it’s not as intimidating, and you really get time to talk to each club.”

With the media center getting crowded at Club Rush, the administrators wanted to create a more relaxed experience at Freshman Connectivity Night. Clubs were hosted in the school cafeteria while sports took up the gym, allowing incoming students to walk around Lambert and get acquainted early. 

“We were nervous, obviously, since it was the first time doing it, but lots of clubs signed up, and we’ve got pretty much a full house, which I’m super excited about,” Mrs. Fowler exclaimed. “We really just did it as a way to kind of add to the experience we were already providing to our rising ninth-grade families here, and we wanted to include them more”

With both a decent crowd and turnout from Lambert’s student-led organizations, it’s clear that the night helped introduce new students and their families to the culture at Lambert. Apart from just exploring clubs, incoming freshmen got to walk around campus and get introduced to key parts of Lambert’s community, from the service dogs to teachers and administrators. We look forward to seeing the incoming freshmen next year and the impact they’ll have on our school!
