Displayed from: Aug 25, 2011 , until: Sep 30, 2011

Schools will be welcoming families back to school over the next few weeks for the annual Back-to-School Nights. At each school, parents will have the opportunity to see where their children learn as they tour the schools, visit classrooms and meet teachers. Many schools also combine the evening with dinner, the annual flower show, PL 221 meetings to review academic goals or the annual Title I meeting (for those schools required to hold such meetings). 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 seeds and materials for the planting project and students learn to develop a green thumb while caring for their 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.
