Parent expo Thursday

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, September 23, 2009

The Pike County School System will host its second annual Parent Expo Night from 5:30 until 7:30 Thursday night, Sept. 24, at Cattleman Park and all parents are invited and encouraged to attend.

Elizabeth Grubbs, Pike County Schools community education director, said the first Parent Expo Night was such a great success that the event was moved to Cattleman Park to accommodate the anticipated number of parents who will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the school system in general and their child’s school in particular and to receive free, appropriate grade level school supplies.

“Parent Expo Night is a countywide event where Pike County Schools teachers, counselor and administrators have an opportunity to interact with parents from Brundidge, Banks and Goshen schools,” Grubbs said. “We’ll have representatives there from the central office and teachers from each grade level from each school. And, there will also be representatives from community agencies. We want our parents to know that the Pike County Schools are community friendly and that we all have our children at heart.”

“We want to offer encouragement and information to the parents so that they will be knowledgeable about the school system and what we are attempting to accomplish,” Grubbs said. “The curriculum that we use is system wide, so the teacher representatives should be able to answer any general questions that parents might have.”

Refreshments will be served and door prizes awarded.

School buses will be available for parents who don’t have transportation to and from Cattleman Park. Pickup stations are Meeksville Fire Station, Shellhorn School, Springhill Chevron Station, Goshen High School, Sun-Trace Mobile Home Park, Pronto Community (Clay Hill Church), Pike County High School and Banks Middle School. Pick-up time for all buses is 4:45 p.m. Thursday.
