What do you do at parents night? Anyone know? I wonder if it was like our old school where you just see the teacher and go over what she expects. But since we moved this new school says not children allowed...What are your parents night like? I'm hoping I can go to ours since we just moved to MA and have no family or anyone here to babysit.

Sorry, never heard of parent's night.

We have parent teacher conferences during the first and last report card time to go over grades, how your child is doing, etc, and then we have "back to school night" that occurs prior to school starting (3-4 days before) so you can meet the teacher, see the classroom, etc. But that's it for us.

I will also say that anything at our school even if it says "parents", the children are ALWAYS welcome to come. So you may want to inquire about that if that is the only thing keeping you from going. Even parent teacher conferences the kids themselves and/or siblings are welcome to come.

We have back to school night tomorrow and it's basically a short meeting of all the parents led by the principal and PTO Pres. Then we move to the classroom and each teacher does their own thing so I am not sure about that. We are able to take children (well, your school child is expected) but my sister who is a teacher says that some of the younger siblings can be distracting and hard but it all depends on the child

We just went to Parents Night for the Kindergarten and 1st graders a few weeks ago. Everyone (including the kids) met in the cafeteria first. Then the parents went off with the appropriate teacher to the classrooms while the kids stayed behind and played games.

The teacher then spent about half an hour going over all the things we needed to know about the lesson plans, classroom procedures, and homework.

We don't have that. We have open house which is where the parents get to meet your child(ren)'s teacher. Not sure if that's the same thing or not, but it kind of sounds like it. We can take our kids though.

We've had similar in our old school too and children were always welcome. The not specifically said "parents only". I think that makes it hard for some parents to attend.

I will just share this tid bit. We had a flier sent home from the gifted teacher for a parents informational meeting. It said "parents only" as well, so I made arrangements for my husband to be home that night so I could go, etc. Well, when I got there the room was full of kids from school aged to babies, at least 10 (probably only 15 parents), so I don't know how much of an impact those phrases have on folks. If it came down to you not being able to go, then I'd make a phone call or send an email to the teacher and explain that and see if they can make an exception.
