  • My kids school has a First day celebration. Thats when we get to meet with the teacher as the day begins while the students go and find out if there are any new school rules. Sometimes this time is great for getting information such as e-mails or class room phone numbers . I have found it to be a great way to make sure those all important school form like the emergency cards to get home. Otherwise the kids have to bring them home then they get lost in transport.

  • WE have a meet the teacher day a few days before school, where the kids and parent meet the teacher fill out final paperwork etc. But that usually only takes a few minutes

  • Open House is the night before school starts here. We meet the teachers, can bring in school supplies (for elementary school's), the kids can meet some of the kids that will be in their classes and I get to meet some of the parents and teachers and get all the classroom rules and teacher emails. The subject teachers go over expectations, we learn of any new rules or changes in the school. My son goes back Sept 1st and I cannot wait.

  • No. There is an open house a few weeks into the year where we can meet the teachers.
    Well, the preschool and kindergarten do have a day like that. The first day of school the older kids have a half day and the kindergarteners come in an hour later and have a little meet thing with refreshments and playing in the classroom, etc. Then an hour after that the preschool comes in. They are only there an hour and then start school the next day (full day for all kids P-8). We missed it with our son because they started a week and a half after the school year started but my middle daughter had a blast last year.

  • In grade school, we had a "meet the teacher" night. They would also go over the handbook, rules etc. It was nice. Now they are in highschool...I miss them being little.
