Warm welcome


Student Council provided a wide variety of breakfast foods to welcome new students to the Ike community. “To provide some comfort as a human act of kindness [through this event] is a great thing,” Associate Principal Kate Walker said. This is a great way for students to get to know each other and get introduced to the Ike building.

As the 2022-2023 school year begins, students and staff give a warm welcome at the “New student breakfast”.

The “new student breakfast” is a long-standing Eisenhower tradition where new students are invited to come down and get to know other new eagles. The breakfast was held on Sept. 9 and all who were invited came down during their first hour and enjoyed a wide variety of breakfast foods. 

“The purpose of the new student breakfast is to make sure that all the new students get to meet each other.” Junior class vice president Madison Besile said. I’m excited for them to be able to feel like they are a part of the Ike community.”

Students from different school districts, some even from different states and countries, have the opportunity to sit down and chat with others in a similar situation.

“Overall, I think the student breakfast is great. I’m totally surprised with the ends of the earth that these kids have traveled,” Associate Principal Kate Walker said.

Many of the students who attended alone quickly were able to find a familiar face and strike up a conversation. 

“I hope I can learn more at Ike than I did at my previous school, I feel like I wasn’t learning enough because it was hybrid learning,” Junior Gavin Case said. “Everybody here has been super nice, I even made friends the first day in my debate class.”
