Parents Get Special Welcome at Back to School Night

Parents Get Special Welcome at Back to School Night

Aug 2016


Back to School Night at Queen of Apostles was a great night for parents to meet with their child’s teacher, and get acquainted and reacquainted with other Q of A parents.

Principal Marty Chargin kicked off the evening with brief updates about key improvements in the school’s curriculum and facilities. He then introduced all of the staff, including those parents may not interact with daily such as the science, music, art, math, and Spanish teachers. The parent leaders of the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) were also introduced by PAC President Christy Choate. Her sincere request that parents reach out to the PAC with their ideas and suggestions was no doubt furthered by the opportunity to put faces with the various chair positions the PAC includes.

The most exciting part of the night was spending time with the teachers in the classrooms. The teachers used the opportunity to explain processes such as homework, field trips, and volunteer opportunities. Weekly schedules were reviewed, as were the expectations about using the school’s iPads for classwork. The calm, adult only environment was also the ideal opportunity for parents to ask the teacher any questions about the upcoming school year.

By the end of the evening, relationships had been built, everyone’s questions were answered, and the school’s community of parents, teachers, and staff were united in creating a great 2016-2017 year for all.
