School bells will once again ring at Brady High School on Tuesday, Sept. 4 as only incoming freshmen arrive early at 7:50 a.m. for a meeting in the auditorium. After a brief orientation, the freshman class will meet with their family group mentors who will issue them their official copy of the schedule for the fall semester. The freshmen will then run through a shortened daily schedule so they can get their ‘bearings,’ meet their teachers and find their way around before the upperclassmen arrive. Zero hour for the remaining students and upperclassmen begins at 9:30 a.m. At 10 a.m. all students and faculty will convene in the auditorium for a general assembly. After the assembly, all students will adjourn to meet with their mentors and family groups, where each student will be issued several forms which will need to be filled out and returned the following day. These forms include lunch applications, student information cards, language surveys, student insurance forms and schedule and locker assignments for the year. Each student will also be given a planner, the student code of conduct and a student handbook, all of which contain important information for the 2001-2002 school year. Students will be able to receive a token for a ‘Free 100’ to be used in any class for a daily grade if they return all of the required forms with parent signatures by Thursday, Sept. 6. Parents are urged to read the forms carefully and see that each one is signed and returned in a timely manner. After receiving all of the forms, all students will report to their first period class and follow a first-day only schedule as listed below: First period’10:50-11:25 a.m. Second period’11:30 a.m.-12:05 p.m. Third period’12:10-12:45 p.m. Lunch break’12:50-1:30 p.m. Fourth period’1:35-2:10 p.m. Fifth period’2:15-2:50 p.m. Sixth period’2:55-3:30 p.m. For the remainder of the school year, zero hour will begin at 7 a.m. The permanent daily schedule will be as follows: Zero hour’7-7:45 a.m. First period’7:50-8:40 a.m. Second period’8:45-10:15 a.m. Breakfast break’10:15-10:30 a.m. Third period’10:30 a.m.-12 noon.
