Senator Square: Carson High School to host Family Night during Homecoming week
For the Nevada Appeal
The tradition of homecoming continues at Carson High School the week of Sept. 21 with events every day for students and the community to participate. The newest event that will be added to the week of homecoming will be the addition of a “family night.” We have changed our traditional “open house” format to a Family Night to take place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 25. Parents and students are welcome to come and tour our campus at any time during this two hour block. Some examples of the activities we will be offering are:
1. Each subject area (i.e. English 1, Algebra, Biology etc.) will showcase their learning guides and have learning activities for visitors to engage in
2. Co-curricular classes (i.e. Band, Choir, ROTC etc.) will perform in various locations throughout the building
3. CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes will showcase individual student and CTSO projects
4. Parent University classes will be held for Career Cruising and the 1:1 Project
5. Resource tables will be set up in Senator Square for the Health Clinic, Nutrition Services, College Savings Plans of Nevada, etc.
The homecoming parade will immediately follow the Family Night at 6:30 and the homecoming game will start at 7 p.m. We will be providing a free hot dog dinner to families who attend the event and complete our “Family Night Passport.” Families also will be given free entry to the football game by visiting school booths and completing the passports. We hope to see everyone here that evening. For more information about family night, please feel free to contact the school at 283-1910.
