Canyon Creek Middle School parents and special guests experienced “a day in the life” of their students on Monday, October 29 at the seventh annual “CCMSTake Your Parent to School Day.”
“The goal is to bring these adults in for first-hand experience in the classrooms and to see what their students are learning and how they are being taught,” said CCMS principal, Sandi Christensen. “It’s great for them to see our wonderful teachers in action and get the chance to spend this time with their middle school child.”
Christensen said she hopes this time together will help promote conversations at home about friends, teachers, classes and what students are learning. “Once parents see their student in their element here they can be better able to provide support in their education,” she said.
More than one-third of CCMS students had an adult accompany them to classes. “It was our most well attended parent day yet,” Christensen said. Parents were not the only ones who took part in the day with many grandparents, aunts, uncles and other special adults in attendance.
