The Fortuna High School Staff invites parents to Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 23, 2015. Back to School night is an opportunity for parents to meet teachers and to hear an overview of the classes their student currently attends.
Each class session will last eight minutes, with five minutes passing time between each class. Class schedules and maps of the school will also be available in the main office if needed. Principal’s secretary Robin Eckerfield said, “I enjoy meeting the parents and giving directions.”
Eckerfield explained that the staff will be focusing on communicating more with the students’ parents.
Many teachers offer extra credit to students whose parents attend, an easy way to improve grades. Back to School Night is also a great way to get your parents more involved with your classes.
