Sharpen your pencils, scope out deals on calculators and brush the dust off your backpack—it is already time to start talking about going back to school.
Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) has announced the schedule for Back-To-School Night.
This will be the first formal chance for parents to meet and greet the newest principals, including Arnold Elementary's new principal and Cape St. Claire Elementary's new principal .
More than 77,000 students are expected to enter AACPS classrooms this fall, and Back-To-School Nights provide parents with the opportunity to learn more about their child’s teachers, and the instruction their children are receiving, according to a press release from AACPS spokesman Bob Mosier.
“Helping our children achieve success is a team effort that requires parents to be involved in the educational process,” schools Superintendent Kevin Maxwell said in the release.
“Back-To-School Night provides the first of many opportunities throughout the school year for parents to interact with teachers and learn about classroom procedures and the things their children will be studying. I would urge every parent to take full advantage of these opportunities," he said.
