PHOENIX – With the 2016-17 school year under way, parents in the Phoenix Central School District had a chance to meet their child’s teachers and tour the elementary and middle schools during recent open houses.
At Emerson J. Dillon Middle School, students led their parents around the building, stopping in different classrooms and meeting with teachers in each academic area.
Parents learned about classroom expectations and discussed their child’s progress and goals for the school year.
Much like the middle school open house, the elementary school was bustling with excitement during its open house Sept. 21.
Families and students filled the halls and classrooms of Michael A. Maroun Elementary, eager to meet the teachers and check out various class projects.
Students in the kindergarten wing practiced writing their name while older students read stories and showed off their work.
According to Principal Brett Doody, the open house always draws a large crowd to the building and provides an opportunity for parents to be engaged in their child’s learning.
“It’s great to see such a turnout,” Doody said. “We’re looking forward to a great year.”
