Back to School Night brings families together
By Nateshia Anderson
Patterson High School held its annual Back to School Night on September 22 from 5:00-7:00 PM. The purpose of this event was for the parents and families of students to meet the teachers and the community and learn about opportunities that were offered to their children.
The school provided free snowballs for everybody. A lot of people had fun. We talked to teachers at the event to find out how they help the students learn.
Ms. Jones said, “Give them extra attention, adjust my lessons so that each child is able to reach them and able to understand the material, make sure that I also pair them up with a buddy in the classroom… When they need some additional help, I can give them additional resources like…Khan Academy…”
Patterson High School is a place where students can come and talk to teachers and find out who they truly are.
“I can create an environment that feels safe and nurturing”, said Mr. Mike.
Administrators were also there, like Ms. Edler, who explained, “The first thing is I believe in holding students accountable and also supporting them in that accountability. Also, we present opportunities like college visits. However, students must be in full uniforms and they must be in school on time and be able to attend those visits.”
All in all, Back To School Night was a successful event where everybody came out and helped their children’s futures.
