Harry Hoag Open House Thursday, Oct. 6

Ah fall, that time of year when it seems there are more activities than there are hours in the day. Fall sports and activities, orientations, picture days, work, dinner and homework. The next thing you know it’s time for Open House and you think to yourself, “Do I really need to go?” We get it, we’ve all been there before. Especially those parents who have several children might especially feel like they’ve, “been there, done that” in the past.

But… you’re child has never been this age before, they’ve never had this teacher before, every year is a new experience for THEM and your presence is as important as ever. So if you need a little extra motivation, here are our Top 3 reasons for attending this year’s Open House:

1. It’s informative! Meet the teachers, learn about the curriculum, see what your child has been learning and view their accomplishments. Teachers will be available in their classrooms at your leisure from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

2. It’s social! Meet other parents, find out who’s in your child’s class that you know. Maybe you can carpool, or start a book club. Community booths will also be set up in the gymnasium. Consider signing up to help out for events with the PTA, and/or joining the Boy or Girl Scouts.

3. It’s fun! PTA will be hosting an ice cream social and a book fair from 6:30-7:15 p.m. And really, ice cream for dinner once in a while never hurt anyone.
