Back To School Night (With Angela Maiers) Next Thursday, September 16


Burlington High is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting nationally known education consultant Angela Maiers during our parents night on September 16, 2010. Angela will speak to parents in the Burlington High School Auditorium from 5:30-6:30 p.m.  Angela is regarded an expert on 21st Century education, learning, and literacy and she is excited to offer our community her enlightening perspective on how the world inside schools needs to change in order to better prepare our students for the world outside of our schools.

More importantly, Angela brings the perspective of a mom with two school-aged children.  This is an important opportunity for all parents of students in Burlington to get involved in the conversation concerning where we need to go as both a high school and a school district in order to provide our students the most relevant education possible.
Following Angela’s presentation, we will follow our traditional Back-to-School Night schedule. Back-to-School Night offers parents an opportunity to meet their child's teachers and to familiarize themselves with their student's schedule by following an abbreviated school day schedule. During the class periods, teachers will provide parents with an overview of the course and outline their expectations.
Administrators and guidance counselors will also be available to answer questions throughout the evening, and refreshments will be served in the lobby.  Mr. Larkin encourages all parents to take time from their busy schedules to participate in the evening's activities. The evening will conclude at 8:30 p.m.
