Welcome Class of 2020! Freshmen get their own first day on Aug. 19
2016-17 school year will begin Monday, Aug. 22, for all students in the Denton
Independent School District, but not for high school freshmen. The district’s Freshman
First Day program ensures these students get an early, first-hand look at high
school life at each of their respective campuses before the rest of their
classmates at 8:50 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 19.
For the district’s new high
school, Braswell High, it will be the first time the BHS Class of 2020 will
meet and tour their new campus, the district’s fourth comprehensive high
The program serves as an
orientation for first-year high school students by offering a welcome program
as well as allowing them to attend classes, walk the halls on their own and get
acclimated to the larger campuses. And for freshman at Braswell High, it will
be the student’s first introduction to their new campus and new traditions.
Freshman First Day also
introduces participants to various school clubs, organizations and programs
without the added stress of a typical first day of school.
Lunch will be available
for purchase or students may bring it from home. In addition, bus
transportation to students who would normally receive it will be provided.
For more information on
the program, please contact your respective high school or the department of
