First Day • The first day of middle school is really thrilling and filled with new faces • School starts at 8:05am, so make sure you get up at an appropriate time • You either get to school on the bus or as a car rider. Once you get to school the teachers will take care of it from there • 7th graders get the school to themselves on the first day
