CANTON — Superintendent Jill Rossetti and Principal Geoffrey Zini welcomed incoming students at Blue Hills Regional Technical School’s Grade 8 Acceptance Reception Night last week.
On Thursday, March 24, incoming ninth-grade students and their families joined Blue Hills Regional faculty and school community members at the school for its annual Grade 8 Acceptance Reception.
As part of the event, incoming students participated in games in the gym with Blue Hills student ambassadors and faculty members and mingled with their future classmates. Inside the gym was also a DJ, photo wall and snacks.
While students met with one another, parents had a meet and greet in the cafeteria with hors d’oeuvres. During the meet and greet, Principal Zini and Blue Hills seniors Noel Hill and Kayla Anastasio spoke about the school community and what students and families should expect at BHR.
“As a school, it’s really important that we welcome our new Class of 2026 and their families into the Blue Hills school community,” Principal Zini said. “We are so thankful that they have chosen BHR and we want to ensure that they are all excited for what lies ahead of them while they pursue a high-quality career and technical education.”
The event, which was organized by Blue Hills Admissions Director Marybeth Joyce, had over 200 incoming ninth-graders, along with their families, in attendance.
At the end of the event, incoming students took their first Class of 2026 photo in the gym to commemorate the night. Each student also received their first “Class of 2026″‘ t-shirt.
