Timber Creek High School welcomed a new freshman class last week at FISH Camp.

Students attended one of two half-day sessions Aug. 15. Activities included a pep rally to learn about school spirit and traditions, a fashion show to demonstrate dress code “dos and don’ts” and building tours to figure out locations of classrooms and how best to navigate the sprawling facility.

School officials expect more than 700 ninth graders, the biggest class since the campus opened four years ago, to begin classes at Timber Creek Aug. 27, the first day for all KISD schools.

Construction is under way on a $9 million expansion to add a classroom wing, additional parking and a new access road on the northeast side of campus. The improvements should be completed a year from now. According to demographic projections, Timber Creek likely will be the largest high school in the district for years to come.
