    is different than Open House or Curriculum Night. Back to School Night is the first week of school, usually on Thursday from 6:30-8. grades 1-3 have the first 45 minutes and 4-6 the second. Teachers have the entire 45 minutes to discuss expectations, materials, curriculum outlings, field trips, parent volunteers, etc. Generally we have about 80% turn out, depends on your individual class make-up. We have a Back to School BBQ the end of August sponsored by the PTA, this is an informal get together for teachers and families. Each month starting in Sept. we have a single grade Curriculum Night. Each grade decides on the topics they want to present. Last year we did 30 min. each for : Sci./Math, ELA, Computer Lab. We fed them first and the Music teacher did a small presentation with the students for entertainment. This was an interactive evening. In my section the students and parents played some simple math games that would help with learning all the x's facts, and we set up the Moon Phases Calendar assignment. Our night was the week of parent/teacher conferences just before our two week fall break. Being first, we had good turn out.:s)
