HANSEN, Idaho (KMVT-TV) When you're a new student, a crowd of faces can often times seem blurry.
But at Hansen High School, the students hope to help these newbies adjust to Husky life.
Citlali Guerrero, a senior says, "we try to encourage our new students and try to make them feel at home. We give them a new water bottle filled with treats. We tell them how they'll be part of our school."
The school tends to match a person up from each class with the new student to show them around school... "they can get their way around easier and have someone to communicate with."
Once the student has been at Hansen at least three semesters, they can qualify for the National Honor Society, only if they earn a grade point average of 3.3 or higher.
Miguel says, "our focus for it is just for people to get motivated and do harder work."
A 3.3 g–p–a also can earn you a letter H for a Letterman's jacket and your name on the wall. An honorable accomplishment seen on a daily basis.
Ryan Funk, a junior says, "I think it feels good to walk by and see I've earned a letter, not just for sports, but for dedicating myself to school and earning the grades that I do."
Parallel to this wall is a wall showcasing academic awards, highlight the grade point averages of the students.
Traci Spencer adds, "the gold represents kids who have a 4.0, silver is kids with a 3.5–3.99. Green is a 3.0 to a 3.499 and down here are the ones who don't have any is a 2.7 to a 2.99."
