Orientation Information
For your convenience, we will offer an orientation session for you and your child on Thursday, June 3 from 4-6 p.m. Orientation will
be held in the Paul Heath Community Education & Fine Arts Center at JWCC. During orientation, you will have a chance to ask
questions, become familiar with the campus, and pick up your child’s registration gift and other information. Community Education
staff will also be available to offer guided “voyages” throughout the orientation. Even if you and your child are already familiar with the
campus, we encourage you to take this time to walk your child around to his/her classrooms so he/she is familiar with where to go on
the first day.
