Parents jump right back into school year

Last night, Littleton High School welcomed back students and parents to the school year with the annual back to school night. Parents were greeted by cheerleaders and The Lionettes, then ushered into the theater, where principal Amy Oaks gave an encouraging speech about high school life.

Parents started off by going to seminar, which is a new concept to everyone. Seminar teachers did their best to explain seminar and its purposes.

After hearing about seminar parents all dispersed and headed off to their child’s first period class. Many parents found themselves getting lost or confused by the room numbers and hallways of LHS. But fortunately, the spirit squads of Littleton were there to assist them along.

Each class period was about 10 minutes long, so teachers had to speak quickly to get all their materials covered. Parents seemed interested and took time to write important notes down and ask questions.

Thanks to the PTO president, Kelly Hisamoto, parents were given refreshments like lemonade and cookies. Overall, the parents were well taken care of and most of them left satisfied from the evening.

Back to school can be a bittersweet time, but even so, the staff members are ready to bring their best for the 2016-2017 school year. image (3)image (2)image (1)image
