Addison Trail hosts annual New Student Breakfast

On Sept. 29, Addison Trail hosted its annual New Student Breakfast.

During the event, Addison Trail and District 88 administrators and staff members welcomed about 60 students who are new to the area or who have transferred to Addison Trail. The goal of the breakfast is to welcome those students to the school, help establish a sense of belonging/inclusion and show what it means to be an Addison Trail Blazer.

Addison Trail Director of Guidance Kevin Redding gave students tips on how to be successful throughout their high school career, and Principal Jack Andrews (who is an alumnus of Addison Trail) provided words of encouragement. Participants also had an opportunity to win Blazer T-shirts through a raffle.
