Everything to Cover for your Middle or High School Open House -- From Personal All the Way Down to Procedures
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be all that stressful. We all know to dress well, speak clearly and be cordial. All of these little the details can still make us feel a little anxious. But with some planning and preparation, Open Houses and Parents Night can be nothing but a good time.
Prep Your Talking Points
The first thing you’ll want to do is lay out is your talking points. Think about all of the most important aspects of your classroom and how you want them to be conveyed.
Consider the Doodle Approach
You can explain to the parents what Doodle Notes are and share their benefits, and then they can see how they work first hand.
The files are great for sharing with students on the first day as well. Instead of a boring expectation sheet, hand these out and let them give it a try! They’ll be introduced to the doodle note method and … BONUS… will remember your classroom rules REALLY well!
Hopefully, both your students and their parents will respond well to these as you kick off the school year.
Parent Night and Open Houses really should be a fun and exciting time for everyone. After all, it is the big kick off to the new school year. A new year full of getting to know each other, learning, fun and excitement. Do you have any tried and true tips for great Parent Nights? We’d love to hear some of your advice in the comments below!

Parent-teacher meeting is always something that I am looking forward to. I like knowing how my son is performing in school. I am a very hands on mother and I want to make sure that my son is getting the best education and treatment from his school. I want to be able to guide when he needs something or when he needs help in doing his assignments. I always like it when I hear from my son's teachers that he is a really good and intelligent boy.
