Attention incoming freshman! Next year there will be a new way of finding friends and making cliques. Freshman left to their own devices makes for disaster and we are getting ahead of the curve.
As a solution, East Forsyth is turning to a sorting system much like the sorting hat in Harry Potter. In the famous book series and movies Harry Potter and his friends get sorted into four different houses. The magical sorting hat puts each student in the Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin house. You are place
The freshman next year will be sorted into similar groups. The group they are sorted in will become the only people they hang out with. The students will be sorted into categories that differ from Harry Potter but relate to our school.
The East Forsyth houses have been modeled off of the popular 1985 movie The Breakfast Club. The Breakfast Club is a story about five teenagers in high school detention who all come from a different stereotype and all become friends. Represented in the movie were the geeks, jocks, princesses, the outcasts, criminals, and the brains.
At freshman orientation this year, every freshman will be required to fill out a survey and questionnaire that will place them as a brain, princess, geek, jock, criminal, or outcast. Each question will dive deep into the subconscious of every hormonal teen about to enter what they “think” will be the most important four years of their life… at least until college comes around.
The survey will include average “get to know you questions.” Questions like: If you were a dragon what would you breathe instead of fire? If ghosts can walk through walls and glide down stairs, why don’t they fall through the floor? If you could be any animal what animal would you be?
This will be the most important part of freshman orientation and will determine the course of the rest of their high school lives. The results of the survey are final. Good luck, freshman.
