Administration Holds Back to School Night
By NATALY ROSALES
Administration hosted Back to School night to create a teacher-parent partnership on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
The evening opened with a meet and greet in the school gymnasium to introduce the faculty. Following the session, attendees continued with individual classroom visits, with ten minutes for each class period.
Overall, the event allowed parents an opportunity to see their children’s teachers and learn about course curriculum and class requirements.
According to math teacher Kenneth Kakimoto, multiple elements ensured that Back to School Night ran smoothly.
“It is important to make the parents feel welcomed on campus and with teachers. The school held the event in a quality manner that left the parents satisfied which indicated that Back to School night was successful,” Kakimoto said.
In addition, Associated Student Body member junior Namea Allen highlighted how ASB made Back to School Night successful and simple for the parents.
“To make the parents feel welcomed, ASB always made sure to shake hands, greet them and we wore our ASB polos,” Allen said. “Each member [is] assigned stations and that way, ASB members could direct parents around the campus more dependably.”
Furthermore, freshman Isaias Santiago believes that Back to School Night offered new students a chance to become more familiar with the school.
“[Back to School Night] gave me a refresher of the requirements each teacher expected and provided my parents a chance to meet teachers and get used to the campus,” Santiago said.
Administration will host Coffee with the Principal on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
