Schools Kick Off School Year with Back-to-School Nights - August 10, 2017

Record Number: 16602
Displayed from: Aug 10, 2017 , until: Oct 10, 2017

    Students are heading back to school, which means schools are hosting Back-to-School Nights for families. The events give families the opportunity to meet teachers, visit classrooms and kick off the 2017-18 school year. Some schools open their doors before the first day of school to allow students to bring in their supplies and meet their teachers in advance. Families in several buildings will also get to see building improvements made over the summer.

    Many schools also combine the evening with dinner, the annual flower and plant show or the annual Title I meeting (for those schools required to hold such meetings). The elementary schools’ plant shows are the results of students’ hard work over the summer. In the spring, the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department provides plants to encourage students to learn to develop a green thumb while caring for their own flowers and plants.

    Below is a schedule of Back-to-School Nights. For more information about your child’s Back-to-School Night, contact your school.
