Northampton Borough Elementary School held its annual meet the teacher night Sept. 8 with parents/guardians and students trickling in between 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Principal Douglas Sherman and Assistant Principal Kaitlynn McNally were found waiting at the entrance, providing direction and greetings to all visitors.
Parents/guardians were invited to tour the school and attend individual teacher meetings in the classrooms, where a rundown on the year and expectations were provided.
Aside from talks with teachers, there were clubs and organizations sprinkled throughout the school to provide some information to parents/guardians and students. Girl Scout Troop 8472 was present with fliers and information packets on local troops looking for Scouts. Interested girls can visit girlscouts.org/join to get started.
Northampton Area High School student Kathryn Esser was also available to speak with parents/guardians about the Odyssey of the Mind Club. The club works as a team to solve problems and create short skits to perform at state-level and national-level competitions. Odyssey of the Mind meets one to two hours a week to work on long-term problem synopses; there are five problem options open to all age divisions and a primary division for kindergarten through second grades.
