Guidance Hosts Virtual Freshman Meet Up

Earlier this year, students and faculty attended virtual “Freshman Meet Up” events hosted on Zoom. Guidance Chair Mr. Chris Dougherty ’91 explained that the goal of the events is community building, especially among the freshman class. “The Class of 2024 did not have a Freshman Camp, a Mass of the Holy Spirit, Freshman Field Day, Walkathon, a fall retreat at Esopus, and they haven’t even had homerooms yet due to the hybrid schedule. Some freshmen who have been fully remote since September haven’t even been to Molloy for any classes,” said Mr. Dougherty. “We wanted to bring the freshmen together with these virtual events to connect them with each other, upperclassmen, teachers, and peer group leaders.” The meet ups to date have welcomed hundreds of participants and have featured spirited conversation as well as breakout rooms for smaller group discussion. After receiving positive feedback, more virtual “Freshman Meet Up” events have been planned for spring. #MolloyHS
