‘Fish camp’ set for BHS freshmen

Fish camp’ No, you don’t need to bring a fishing pole, but come excited about learning the “ins and outs” of a freshman at Brady High School. BHS will offer its eighth annual “Fish Camp” to give incoming freshmen an opportunity to get ahead before the first day of school. Sessions on study skills, getting ready for college, attendance policies, behavioral expectations and time management will be conducted in a three-hour mini-camp. Each day, a group of approximately 30 students will break out into small groups and get a hands-on orientation with upperclassmen. Concluding the day, a panel of upperclassmen will address “freshman concerns.” Schedules and locker assignments will be issued on the assigned days, and refreshments will be served. Tokens for a “free homework” pass, “drop the lowest daily grade” and/or “free tardy” will be given to those in attendance. The camp will be held in the high school auditorium Tuesday, Aug. 14, Wednesday, Aug. 15 and Thursday, Aug. 16 from 2-5 p.m. Students have been assigned according to their last name as follows: Tuesday, Aug. 14’A-Go Wednesday, Aug. 15’Gr-N Thursday, Aug. 16’P-Z In conjunction with the fish camp, Monday evening, Aug. 13, a parent orientation will be presented in the Brady High School auditorium beginning at 6 p.m. Parents will be exposed to information to help make their student’s high school experience both productive and fun. Parents who attend the orientation can earn their student a token for a “free 100” which may be used for a daily grade in any one class. All parents are invited and urged to attend.
