Parents learn about classes at the high school

Parents follow their children’s schedules to go over the syllabi of each class with teachers.  Parent Night is an annual event held each September, and is a way for parents to meet teachers.

The parents visited their children’s teachers for ten minutes each to go over what the students will be doing in the class this year.  Credit: Lillian Schrafft for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
