The first year of high school can be a little intimidating but the administration of the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls is constantly working to ensure that their ninth-graders are comfortable in their new surroundings! The annual Big Sister/Little Sister Program pairs up freshmen and juniors to create special connections between upper and lower classmen, with the goal of building strong relationships both inside and outside of school.
The program on Thursday, October 3, was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to meet each other in a relaxed venue; bonding over the game, “The Quest,” the girls built human pyramids, and then shared stories over ice cream. Each SKA ninth grader now has a “sister” as a friend, role model, and shoulder to lean on! v
