  • Course Objectives: The goal of this course is to assist incoming freshmen through every aspect of their high school career. They will be introduced to many topics that will aid them in becoming a more successful student and citizen. Topics will include orientation to the campus and staff, knowledge and use of the online grading/attendance program, and organizational strategies. Additionally, we will provide freshmen with an understanding of courses and extracurricular activities available to them during their time at Granada. Students will also learn technological skills that will apply to their classes, public speaking skills, and team building skills. Each student will complete a 4-year plan designed to help him/her achieve his/her high school and post-secondary goals. Lastly, students will explore personal aspects that affect their high school career including study skills, communication, and budgeting. Please refer the course calendar for daily agendas.

    3-Ring Binder (2) A binder for this class is required along with 4 dividers, as we will use it to organize and hold F.I.T. info, class work and homework assignments. The F.I.T. binder will be used weekly for binder checks and our final exam. If students do not have an entire binder devoted to F.I.T. then these 4 dividers must be used to create a specific section in a larger binder for this course.   Binder dividers will be labeled as follows:

    1. Class info. (syllabus, calendar, and weekly grades)
    2. Binder checks (weekly evaluations of completed work)
    3. Work in progress
    4. Graded work

Makeup work for excused absences must be made up within the allotted time following the days of absence. If you are absent one day, then your makeup work is due one day after your return. Any work previously assigned prior to your absence is due upon the first day of your return. Makeup work will not be allowed for unexcused absences (cuts).
