 9TH GRADE MINI DAY: The mini-day experience has been created to ease the nervousness of the beginning of a new school year in a new building with a lot of new people. As a 9th grader or new student, you will go through your individual schedule of classes, each 5 minutes long, and see what other 9th graders are in those hours. A student volunteer will be in each classroom to provide information to you about high school. On Wednesday, the first full day of classes, you will meet your teachers and get specific information about each class.
