ELEVATE+: Dear Freshman: Advice From Upperclassmen

OKLAHOMA CITY (August 8, 2016) –Today, the Oklahoma State Department of Education debuted its second Elevate+, “Dear Freshman: Advice From Upperclassmen.” In the video segment, recent graduates and members of the Class of ’17 school the Class of ’20 on everything they need to know to make the transition to high school.
Last year’s upperclassmen – who graduated from or attend high schools in Weatherford, Broken Arrow, Alva, Spiro, Claremore, Muskogee, Duncan and Piedmont – advise new Oklahoma freshmen how to find balance between schoolwork and activities, make new friends, set goals and manage their stress. All were members of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister’s first Student Advisory Council.
“Our Elevate and Elevate+ segments further one of my most important goals – spotlighting excellence in education,” said Hofmeister. “These young leaders in the making embody that excellence in a segment full of sound advice for those who will follow them through the halls of their high schools.”
