Back to School Night
We look forward to meeting all our parents on Back to School Night (BTSN), Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 7-9pm.
For freshman parents this BTSN will be a unique experience. While 7th and 8th Grade parents do attend their BTSNs on the same evening, it is nothing like the marathon-like experience of the high school event.
All high school parents attend one evening of BTSN, going from classroom to classroom and getting a 10 minute overview of the classes from each of their students’ teachers. Not only is the high school a larger building, but there will be twice as many parents rushing through the halls between classes. To help you find your way around the school, Student Council members will be stationed around the building to offer assistance.
You should have received in the US Mail a BTSN worksheet on which you can schedule the classes to visit. If you have more than one child at the high school and can’t be in two places at once, you will have to prioritize. You might choose to visit the teacher you haven’t met, or choose your older child’s teacher. Or, you might choose the classroom that requires the shortest path! If you plan carefully, you may at least be able to introduce yourself to all your teachers between sessions. If you can’t meet the teacher at the scheduled time, feel free to make an appointment to meet them another day.
Experienced parents will tell you:
• Wear comfortable shoes-you may be sprinting from one end of the building to the other
• Plan to arrive by 6:30-parking is limited and latecomers typically end up on Wellesley Street and miss their first class!
• Enjoy the evening-You’ll see many familiar faces and will meet many wonderful teachers. Refreshments will also be available, organized by the HS PTO, if you have a free!
