    Huron News for the week of 9/15/19

    Monday, 9/16 is Capsule Night - I would like to invite you to Huron High School’s Capsule Night. Your child’s class schedule is available in PowerSchool for you to print and bring with you. Doing so will allow you to avoid lines to pick up your child’s schedule.  The evening will begin in Meyers Auditorium from 6:30 PM to 7:00 PM. I will provide an overview of Huron, performance/achievement information, and academic opportunities at Huron. Mr. Marios Demetriou, Assistant Superintendent for Finances and Operations, will provide important information on the 2019 Bond. From 7:05 PM until 9:05 PM you will have the opportunity to follow your child’s schedule at Huron, visit their classes, and meet their teachers. During your classroom visits, teachers will discuss their curriculum, classroom expectations, grading policies, integration of IB and answer questions. Also, be sure to visit the Media Center and our Counseling Center during the evening. Capsule Night will not afford you time to talk to teachers individually about your child. That opportunity will occur at Parent/Teacher Conferences in October. If there is information that is important to share with your child’s teachers, please contact teachers outside the venue of Capsule Night in order to provide appropriate and ample time to discuss any information you may have. Capsule Night is a wonderful way to meet your child’s teachers and become familiar with your child’s daily routine and expectations at Huron. I hope to see you tomorrow evening.
