My Agenda at Back to School Night--30 minutes in length
1. Have parents introduce themselves and say their favorite thing about their child.
2. Launch the Power Point Presentation--Helps keep you on track and helps keep parents on track, too. There is not a lot of down-time for impromptu conferences or on-the-spot questioning.
3. iTrailer--I close Back to School Night with an iTrailer of the kids in the classroom ("Coming of Age" template). It is a great way to end the night on a high note. Huge crowd pleaser and a great way to begin the year with a celebration.
All You Need to Have a SLAM DUNK Back to School Night! I hope it is your best one yet.
Have a wonderful school year,
