The school year has officially kicked off and Open House with the Herd was a huge success! Parker High School celebrated “back to school” last night with its annual Open House event. The event was held in the school’s auditorium. Open house, or "Back to School" night was Parker’s opportunity to make a great first impression on parents and stakeholders in the community and at the school.
The event began with greetings from Principal Darrell Hudson, followed by presentations from both the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) and the United National Alumni Association (UNAA) of A.H. Parker High School. After presentations from the PTSA and UNAA, the Parker High School chorale entertained the audience with a rendition of James McCoy’s Hold On Just A Little While Longer, which comprised of four solos from student members of the choir. The Mighty Marching Bison also made an appearance.
Once presentations and housekeeping items were addressed, parents had the opportunity to meet with their children’s teachers. Parents were given their child’s schedule and rotated from classroom to classroom to converse with teachers about school related elements. After classroom visits, refreshments were served in the cafeteria as a token of gratitude for parent attendance.
If you were unable to attend Open House, there will be more opportunities throughout the school year to touch bases with teachers and administration.
