Parents, guardians, and students are invited to attend the Back to School/Meet the Teacher Night scheduled for Wednesday, August 22nd from 5:30-7:00 PM in the cafeteria located on the Mason Elementary/JH campus. The event is specifically targeted at parents of children in grades Pre-K through 4th grade.
The contribution of parents and communication with parents are important factors in the education of MISD students. The district has a Parental Involvement Policy and each campus has a Teacher-Student-Parent Compact located in the Student Handbook that discusses the partnership between the school, parents, teachers and students.
There will be free hot dogs, chips, water and cookies in the cafeteria. Pre-packaged school supplies will be in the classrooms already. Teachers will have sign-ins in their classrooms for anyone interested in being Room Mothers or volunteers. Please be sure to ask about how your children will be getting home (bus, parent pickup, etc.) during this time.
The following services/organizations will be in the cafeteria during the event:
