Today, the Fonda-Fultonville Middle School opened its doors for parents and caregivers to spend time with their students to view their daily classroom activities. Nearly 70 attendees were onsite to see first-hand how their students went to class and engaged in their respective schoolwork while getting a glimpse into how their student’s day-to-day school environment looked from their perspective.
“The American Education Festival allows our middle school families to join their students to observe a normal school day,” said Fonda-Fultonville Middle School Principal Mr. Zadoorian. “From visiting classrooms and seeing their students engaged in class to viewing their progress in person and seeing how FFCS teachers communicate their curriculums – – it’s a fun event to observe middle school. We are incredibly pleased with their participation and find that it creates opportunities for teachers, administrators, and families to engage on educational topics.”
Depending on schedules, parents and caregivers had the opportunity to spend a whole day or select specific timeframes to shadow their students. Attendees met for registration in the morning and received name tags and student schedules. At the completion of the event, parents/caregivers were asked to fill out an exit survey to share their feedback on this unique experience.
As a district, we would like to thank our families who attended this year’s American Education Festival!!
