Hundreds of parents and incoming students filled the Wasco High School cafeteria Monday evening for the annual Freshmen Blast,

Over 500 incoming students snaked around the cafeteria from two directions, while monitors at the door guided everyone to their proper place.

According to parents who have gone through the registration process stated that this year was organized as they've seen in the past.

Incoming students spent the evening preparing for their freshman year. Staff was seated around the perimeter of the cafeteria ready to assist anyone who needed help with their registration packet.

Instructors were seated at separate alphabetized tables for students to quickly sign in and make sure everything in their packet was complete.

Students were lined up on both sides of the building in order to enter the cafeteria.

Ninth-grade English teacher Haleigh Tyack said that she enjoyed meeting her future students.

Sophomore World History and freshman Careers instructor Susannah Stoffels has been involved in the registration process for five years.

Sophomore and junior English instructor Jessica Castruita was available for students to check in with her. "This was my sixth year of doing registration," Castruita said. "I graduated from WHS 20 years ago and went through the same process."

Incoming freshman Jessy Velez was not nervous about going to high school. In fact, he was very pragmatic. "It's a new chapter in life," Velez said.

Issac Ruedall was accompanied by his mother, Evangelina Ruedall. "I've been through this before with my oldest child," Ruedall said.
