Back to School Night

Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors came to North Point on the evening of September 21st with their parents for Open House for the 2010-2011 school year.

Hundreds of parents arrived to meet their son’s or daughter’s teachers. Teachers talked about basic rules in the classroom and lessons that their child will be learning throughout the school year. Parents asked any questions they wanted to know about the class. Each block lasted about ten minutes, but to the dismay of teachers and parents, it wasn’t enough time for them to get acquainted.

“I though it was very short. Once I got into an idea, I get cut off,” commented Mr. Williams, an Advanced Placement English teacher.

Nonetheless, the event went without a hitch. When Megan Gerrity (’12) and her mother were asked about the event, they felt that it was “nice to meet and get a feel for my daughter’s teachers.”

This was the universal feeling of several other parents that were present. Regardless of the difficulty parking, crowded hallways, or limited time to talk with the teachers, Open House will always be a time for parents to see what life at north Point is really like.
