September 6th NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION DAY – 8:00am – 11:20am [No busing]
ALL 6th grade Students
ALL Freshmen Students (even if you attended middle school at BK)
ALL NEW Transfer or NEW International Students
All students entering our high school or middle school for the first time will be in attendance for this event. On this day, all new students, grades 6-12, should report to the school auditorium by 8:00am in full uniform. We want to make sure that each new student to our school takes the time to become familiar with our building, teachers, expectations, and their peers as well. Included with this orientation will be guided tours of the building and a meet and greet with the entire faculty and administration. There will be no busing for this orientation. Students must make arrangements for their own transportation.
September 7th & 8th CLASS ORIENTATIONS
The purpose of these two days is to set the tone and expectations for this school year. All students will arrive on campus in proper uniform, pick up a folder in the foyer and report to the auditorium. Students will attend meetings with their entire class and hear from their administrators, counselors and teachers. Students will also receive their schedules and have time to set up their lockers. We strongly encourage students to bring shelves for their locker so that you can get organized right from the beginning of the year.
