The Open House allowed parents to walk around their child’s schedule and experience the every day life in the eyes of their student. Teachers explained what classes covered in order for parents to understand their child’s routine. The event took place on Aug. 28 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

For as long as Principal Martin Straub and counselor Suellyn Stenger can remember, open houses have been held at the school.

“This is my tenth year so I’m sure it’s been going on for a long, long time,” Stenger said.

Straub believes that the number of parents, who attend, doesn’t change but believes it’s important to attend.

“I just think (it’s important) to get to know who your kid sees every day,” Straub said.

According to math instructors Jayme Goetz and Jerett Pfannenstiel, only about 25 percent of parents attend.

“It’s really important for parents to know what their kids are going through every day,” Goetz said. “It’s important to be involved in their students’ lives.”
