As students get ready for class, here are some important dates to keep in mind

FROM STAFF REPORTS

BURNET — The first day of school is only a couple of weeks away. But it’s only one day that parents and students should keep in mind before classes start.

Several campuses hold events before the first day of class to help parents and students including Meet the Teacher days and “fish camps.” Each gives students who are new to a campus or a class a chance to look around and get a feel for the place.
