Evening For Incoming CHS Freshman And Their Parents Drew Large Crowds
Coventry High School held their first ever "Community Night" on Thursday.
The faculty and staff of Coventry High School welcomed the families of "Future Oakers" Thursday night. The Community Night was held to communicate with incoming freshman and their parents about what the high school experience is like and what they should expect next year.
Visitors interested in the Regional Career and Technical Center arrived at 6 p.m. and everyone else at 6:30.
Parents were welcomed into the school by the CHS Jazz Band and invited to experience "Oaker Pride" within the school's two cafeterias. Families were able to meet with curriculum coordinators and teachers from various academic departments while they viewed samples of student work, departmental awards, instructional resources and curriculum information.
Representatives from numerous academic and athletic teams and school activities such as the Music Department, ROTC and Drama Club were standing by to answer any questions that visitors may have had.
Tours of the school were led by some of the 40 current student volunteers wearing bright red "Ask Me...I Know Stuff" shirts that introduced visitors to the biology and chemistry labs, academic wings, art rooms, career and technical programs, library and everything else the school has to offer.
Parents were also supplied with informational packets including freshman elective and scheduling worksheets and a map of the school.
The evening was concluded with a presentation in the auditorium entitled "Getting Ready for High School" that included highlights of CHS, commentary from current students and information about the freshman scheduling process.
