    Open House
    By mary3rd

    Clip to ScrapBook
    In our district, all schools have an "Open House" the day before the first day of school. This year the elementary schools will have theirs from 3-5:00 p.m.; middle schools 4-6:00 p.m.; and high schools 5-7:00 p.m. Parents just drop in, so they can hit multiple classrooms. We don't have a formal presentation. Students learn who their teacher is, meet him/her, look around the classroom, and get a supply list if they need one. I usuall try to speak for a few minutes to each parent, find out special needs of their children, if any, and give them a packet of forms to fill out (lunch, insurance, etc). We used to have another Open House after three weeks or so, but it was not well attended so we dropped it. We do have parent/teacher conferences after three or four weeks.
