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
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.
