Parent Orientation

We would like to invite the Horton community to our in-person parent orientation scheduled for Wednesday September 21st.  This is an opportunity to put a face with a name.  This is not a one-on-one Parent-Teacher opportunity, but a general review of the class and assessment plans.  Join Horton Administration for coffee and snacks at 6:00 PM before we begin at 6:15 PM in the performance center.

Targets for Horton Teacher Orientation:

  • To put a face to a name is the main goal and the meetings are just 10 minutes.
  • Discuss communication and assessment plans (how to reach out)
  • A typical day in class
  • Review how the parent can support the student
  • Review how a student can support themselves
  • How the teacher can support a struggling student
  • Review the importance of C-O-P and professional judgments (more details at the meeting!)

Meet the teacher is not intended as:

  • The time to review curriculum or topics
  • Individual discussions with parents 

Please bring a picture or a copy of your students timetable so that you are able to follow their schedule.  Horton will provide a quick reference room list, maps and many Student Council volunteers will be present that evening to help navigate the building.

This is our planned schedule for the evening
