Catasauqua Middle School hosted its annual meet the teacher night Sept. 9. Parents were invited to walk around the building for an inside look at their child’s day-to-day instruction and activities, as well as the opportunity to meet their child’s teachers.
Each grade level held a presentation in the auditorium throughout the evening that discussed academic plans and strategies for the school year.
In addition to meeting the teachers, parents had an opportunity to set up parent portal accounts, meet with school counselors and discuss the Project for Success program with mentor Jennifer Staib.
Students were seen leading the way for their parents down each hallway. These types of nights are not only for parents to meet the teachers but for students to show their parents where they spend their days.
