James Logan High School will host its first annual Academic Achievement Night, a night centered on garnering parent involvement and support for the school's academics.
Formerly known as Open House, Achievement Night gives parents the opportunity to directly get involved with their child’s education. This year, however, it is revamped with many new features, such as workshops and a family fundraising dinner.
The fundraising dinner at 5 p.m. will give families a place to enjoy a meal together, plan what activities in which they want to take part and help support the school.
Throughout the night there will be a variety of workshops students and parents can attend. One called “Get to College: The A-G Way” will go over the UC and CSU "A-G" requirements. Meanwhile, “Cash for College” is a senior-only workshop that will allow students to learn more about financial aid options.
Test prep company Kaplan will also be at Achievement Night to give tips and pointers on two important tests, the ACT and SAT.
There will be a total of eight workshops at Achievement Night.
Although revamped with new concepts, Achievement Night will also follow the Open House tradition, allowing parents to visit with their student's teachers. They can follow up on grades, behavior and other questions they might have and open up a direct line of communication with teachers.
Don’t miss out on Achievement Night, February 17th from 5 to 8:30 pm—it is sure to be a fun and very informative event for all.
