Back to School Night Resources 

Parents’ Council representatives should request a display table to setup for Back to School Night. The purpose of this table is to share materials (some below) and to collect contact information from interested parents to keep all year long for the purpose of communication and planning. As stated at the August meeting, a great resource would be a small business card or flyer with your contact information to share with parents. You may also want to have a small survey for parents to share ideas of their interests for the year. You should visit the MCPS website to get a copy of your school’s At A Glance information to share with parents. This document provides a glimpse into your school’s population and more. Below are a few documents to get you started. Ensure that your table is bright and inviting! Have a great Back to School Night!
