Back-to-School Night will be held Sept. 25 from 6 to 7:55 p.m.
Information about the Engineering Pathways, will be available from 5 to 5:45 p.m in the library. The counselors and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) will also have separate tables set up in the front of the school and will be available to answer questions the entire duration of Back-to-School Night.
Just like a typical school day, Back-to-School Night will include six periods with class changes and passing periods.
Starting from 6 p.m, parents will meet in their child’s first period class. After 15 minutes, the school bell will ring, signaling the end of the period. Parents will have a five-minute passing period in order to get to the next class on their child’s schedule. Once they have reached the next class, the schedule will continue until they reach the end of period six at 7:55p.m.
“In my freshman year, I was a little confused because I had gotten lost a couple times, but my mom enjoyed it, and she said that it was really helpful,” said Jade McIntyre, sophomore.
By attending Back-to-School Night, both students and parents get the chance to meet teachers and get a grasp of their styles, and teaching methods.
“Back-to-School Night is for parents to get to know teachers and get an idea for their curriculum and syllabi,” said Constantino Duarte, assistant principal
Members of USB will be helping during Back-to-School Night by putting up maps and guiding people to their destinations. Parking will be available in the parking lot by the gym.
