Baker County-- Baker County ninth graders got their first taste of High school today. It was Freshman fest day at the Baker County Freshman Academy. Students reported to the academy at one-O'clock and received there upcoming class schedules and an event Tee-shirt. Administrators say the fest is designed to better familiarize the students with what the transition to high school will be like on their first day.

"All the ninth grade students are invited to come out and a dry run of what their schedule is like and what the school is like. We meet with them from one until five and then meet with the parents from five until five-thirty and then dinner is served" said Instructional leader Ossie Canidet. 

All Baker County Schools will report for the first official day of classes next Monday July twenty-third.
