Starting off the school on a good note is very important it sets up the foundation for the rest of the school year. Why does this matter? Teachers want students’ parents to be involved and aware of what is going on in their child’s life. Parent involvement, at least at home, is an important factor in any successful student’s life.
Back to school Night according to most parents and teachers was a great success! The night ran smoothly and attendance was high. The senior parent involvement the turnout was pretty great compared to most years. If parents didn’t have time to eat it was no problem. They were offered a choice between TK Burger and Hula Girls Shaved Ice.
Even though it wasn’t necessary for the students to accompany their parents to Back to School Night, many students still did. According to one high school parent , "I had to bribe my daughter with an Ihop dinner after to get her to come”.
Members of ASB were scattered across the campus to help any parent in need of assistance.
When asked what she was most excited about in the new school year, AP Spanish teacher Libset Davalos said, “having the new buildings makes it interesting to come to work and I’m looking forward to working with the new students”. Middle school parent Janet Garcia also shares in the excitement for the new buildings.
Mrs. Lindfors had two unexpected encounters with former students of hers who both happened to have students currently enrolled in the same English class, “It was a pleasant and random surprise” she says.
This year regular psychology was transformed into AP psychology.Many students, although excited for signing up and getting into the course, were concerned about the rigor of the course. Mrs. Soldin on the other hand is “looking forward to teaching a new AP course, but it’ll be different”.
The new school year definitely holds some unopened doors. It was an overall successful Back To School Night and great way to start of the school year.
