On Monday, Feb. 12, the annual Leon High School curriculum night took place in the gymnasium from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

This fair is geared towards rising ninth graders who are considering attending Leon in the fall. Many of the school’s clubs are there, offering information about what they do. These include Interact, ping pong, Mosaic and more.  Student Government Association was also offering group tours of the school.

This year, the fair was bigger and better than ever, according to Principal Billy Epting, in an attempt to accommodate for the absence of shadowing, which usually allows eighth graders to spend the day with a current Leon student to help get a feel for the school.

Shadowing was not offered this year because the school is already over capacity and the county has put a new school choice policy in place.

“That was the main reason we were trying to beef it up, to give potential new students at Leon an idea of what it would be like to come to school at Leon,” Epting said. “That’s why we’ve got all the clubs and sports and different activities having tables in the gymnasium.”
