During the first few weeks of school, my class makes a book about the school. Each student has a page about themself with a picture that they make themselves. I include pictures of important staff and faculty, important parts of the school (gym, media center, computer lab, etc), and extra copies of the student information from the beginning of the year. When a new student arrives, they take the book home for a few days to help get familiar with the school. The students love this and it works great.
