School Events


Many schools offer special activities -- from hot dog roasts to entire parades -- on the first day of school. Learn about the unique ways in which schools greet the year in Education World articles such as Schools Find Many Ways to Say "Welcome Back", Increase Parent Involvement With First-Day-of-School Activities (including a first-day-of-school parade), and Great Starts: Veteran Principals Offer Opening Day Tips.

Many schools are even finding ways to make students and parents feel welcome in the weeks before the opening-day bell. You can find ideas for paving the way to parent involvement in Back-to-School Letters and Survival Kits Build Communication, Principal Goes Door to Door With Back-to-School Message, and Principals Share Parent Involvement Ideas.

And, if we have not piled on enough reading already, don't miss Education World's special Back-to-School and Parent Involvement archive pages.
