Welcome! It’s exciting to have you as a new Bear River Bruin!
Coming to a new school can be overwhelming and quite honestly, very stressful; I know, I’ve been there. That’s why I’m writing this letter, in hopes of making your transition easier. For more information, please explore our full website.
So how do you meet new people and start feeling comfortable at Bear River? There is so much happening on campus, that all you have to do is get involved. Download the list of clubs. Find something that you might be interested in, seek out the teacher listed as advisor, get the meeting dates/times, and most importantly, GO. Give it a try; you can always change your mind.
If you play a sport, find your team listed on the PE/Athletics sheet enclosed. If you haven't played before, there are even a few no-cut sports, such as tennis, which could be a great way to try something new and meet people. Or, there is the BruiNation club that attends most sporting events as a group to cheer on their classmates.
Another place many students find their niche is through our school’s Performing Arts Department. There is incredible talent among Bear River students, and you can be a part of it through Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, several choir programs, our show choir—Starlite Express, the Drama department, Theater Tech, and many more. The Ag Department also keeps many Bruins involved through their activities with FFA.
Most importantly, never forget academics. Set goals for yourself by utilizing the planning guides. It’s your future—make it happen by creating a balance between study and being involved in our school. Our counselors are a great source of help in guiding you toward college or the career of your dreams. In addition, if life starts getting you down, we even have a group called Sources of Strength that can help lift you up.
Your new beginning at Bear River can be so many things; exciting, stressful, confusing, or fun! Ask questions, find the right people for help, and together let’s make this the best time of your life. See you on campus!
