Huntington High School Plans Open House for K-8 Parents
There's a reason why the Washington Post ranked Huntington High School in the top three percent of all United States high schools last spring. Ask current students and alums of any age and they will almost uniformly tell you that it's a great place to study and the school's countless extra-curricular activities are hard to top.
Huntington High School is holding an open house over three days in November for the parents of students currently enrolled in grades K-8. Parents of students in grades 7-8 will be welcomed on Weds. Nov. 2; parents of fifth and sixth graders are invited to attend an open house on Weds. Nov. 16; parents of youngsters in grades K-4 will be at the high school on Weds. Nov. 30. Each of the open house sessions will run for one hour, beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding at 11 a.m.
"It's never too early for parents to 'think ahead,' regardless of what grade their child might be in today," Superintendent James W. Polansky said. "We are inviting parents to meet members of the high school administration, along with the school's teachers and students."
Principal Carmela Leonardi is working to arrange parent tours of the building, including visits to classrooms, labs and art and music rooms, the library and up and down hallways.
Parents attending the open house sessions will be able to learn more about the academic, athletic and club programs offered at the school, get answers to any questions they might have and clear-up possible misconceptions they hold.
The open house sessions are being sponsored jointly by the district and the Huntington Council of PTAs.
