Myrtle & Gold Week will resemble this schedule, which we have used in the past:

On Days 1 & 2, students will attend each of their subject area classes and division once. In division, students will choose their activities for Wednesday. Classes will last approximately 40 minutes. During each period, the teacher will briefly discuss the class expectations for the upcoming year, and then have fun lessons where students will work together and get to know each other.

On Day 3,  students will attend four activities of their choosing.  Each activity will reflect a class, club, or activity that is offered at Lane.  For example, students will be able to learn an International Nights dance, participate in a Drama activity, learn to play the guitar, build a robot, or explore Lane through the lens of a camera. These are just a few of the activities offered! This day will enable students to meet and interact with others who have common interests.

Day 4 will be a culminating day filled with activities including a scavenger hunt, team building games, and will end with a pizza party in the Memorial garden.
