Back to School Night - children or no children? **UPDATE
I know historically Back to School Night is for the parents. I think I remember that we used to stay at home at my mom or both my parents would go to the school. Nowadays, kids are coming with the parents. We have always taken our kids only because we either didn't have anyone to watch them or it was easier since we just picked them up from the afterschool care and went straight to the multi-purpose room.
The reason I'm asking is because 3/4 of the players on my daughter's soccer team attends a school within the district and has Back to School Night. The coach asked me for suggestions (i'm the team parent). The options are:
- team practices from 5 - 5:45pm so families can attend Back to School Night
- He can have a full practice 5 - 6:30 with goalies going until 7:15 and then he would let the kids play at the park (basically babysit) until Back to School Night is done (between 7:30 - 8).
What do you think?
We decided that we are going to leave her at practice while we attend Back to School Night. Her coach has incredible energy so he will most likely be running around with them at the park after practice until we get there. He is pretty awesome.
