MILLSAP – While enjoying the many activities of summer, it is hard to imagine that the new school year will be starting in about a month. The district has plans well under way for the official start, which for new staff members is Aug. 16.

Much will soon be happening for the students to help them get ready for their first day on Aug. 27. Incoming freshmen are invited to participate in Fish Camp at the high school on Aug. 2, 4-8 p.m. The fee is $10, with a meal and T-shirt included. For students needing a sports physical Parker County Urgent Care is sponsoring them Aug. 1-2 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Peaster High School Athletic Hall for $15 cash.
