Freshmen Report on Tuesday, September 8

School begins on Tuesday, September 8 for incoming freshmen and on Wednesday, September 9 for all students. BFHS will begin at 7:25 a.m. and end at 2:42 p.m. on both days. Classes will begin on Wednesday. Starting after Labor Day allows our students to fully participate in the Walworth County Fair.

On Tuesday, BFHS will introduce freshmen to the Freshmen Mentoring Program (FMP), encourage them to participate in a ropes course, distribute laptops for our one-to-one program, and generally introduce freshmen to life at Big Foot. During the afternoon, freshmen will actually run through a mini-schedule where they will find their classrooms and meet their teachers.

All students will follow a regular schedule on Tuesday, September 9. During the first week of school, all classes will have meetings during the intervention time. During this time, students will take care of class business (e.g. elect officers) and plan for Homecoming Week.

Homecoming Week is Monday, September 28 through Saturday, October 3. BFHS will host the Clinton Cougars for the traditional football game on Friday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m. The Homecoming Parade will take over the village square on Friday at 2:00 p.m. The Homecoming Dance is scheduled to take place in the commons on Saturday, October 3 from 8:30 until 11:30 p.m.
