Displayed from: Aug 25, 2008 , until: Sep 30, 2008

Parents will get a chance to be the student as they visit their child's school during Fort Wayne Community Schools' annual back-to-school nights. At each school, parents will have the opportunity to see where their children learn and play as they tour the schools, visit classrooms and meet teachers. Many schools also combine the evening with an ice cream social, picnic, PTA event, flower show or other event. The elementary schools' flower shows are the results of students' hard work over the summer. In the spring, the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department provides seed and materials for the planting project. Below is a schedule of back-to-school nights. For more information about your child's back-to-school night, contact your school.
