Freshman Orientation: All fun and games
Incoming freshmen participated in their first high school orientation at SECA's new location on Aug. 9. During the morning, students participated in a four-hour Point Break outreach workshop, where they played games, did anti-bullying activities, and large and small group teambuilding exercises.
