To make the transition from one school level to the next a smooth one, Derry Township School District is offering “Bridge Day” – a new orientation event for rising 6th and 9th Graders. The programs will take place on Wednesday, August 22, from 7:30 to 10:10 a.m. Running much like an abbreviated school day, Bridge Day provides participants with an opportunity to meet their teachers & classmates, access lockers, run through class schedules and even become familiar with the food court.
