Knighting of 7th Graders
QIR hosted it's annual "Meet the knights" orientation from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. last Thurs. July 21st. QIR Cambridge Coordinator Jana Wilhite led student groups and teachers through a series of interactive activities designed to foster conversation and communication through completion of fun and silly tasks. These activities allowed students to “break the ice” and get to know their fellow Knights, teachers and school staff before the first day of school. Research shows that anxiety levels are reduced and students better integrate into their new school when a transition activity such as this is held.
While the students were interacting, Knight parents took care of paperwork and picked up of their child's chromebook. Everyone convened in the QIR cafeteria to witness our first ever induction ceremony. Our Knights took a knee and were "sworn in" as official QIR Knights!
