Some call it “Meet the Teacher Night” while others refer to it as “Back to School Night.” The bottom line is that parents of Huntington School District students are invited to attend sessions in each of the district’s eight buildings beginning Thursday, September 12. The evening programs will provide parents with an opportunity to meet teachers and learn more about school policies, course curriculum, educational resources and classroom philosophies.
“Meet the Teacher Night” has always been an important evening for parents. Principals and teachers plan informative and interesting presentations. Parents will be given a clear understanding of how teachers go about educating students as well as their expectations and general classroom policies and practices.
“These events provide parents and guardians with excellent opportunities to meet the professionals who will facilitate learning and serve as among the biggest cheerleaders for their children throughout the year,” Huntington Superintendent James W. Polansky said. “They are the first of many designed to build and strengthen the home-school-community connection.”
