Parents’ Night is an important night in the life of a school. It’s a chance to shine a light on programming, introduce new and returning faculty members, get to know what students will be exploring in their classes, and build relationships with everyone in our community.
We will officially begin at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, September 26 in the 7 East Cafetorium. For those able to attend, Mr. Zemsky will provide a presentation on the new strategic vision of Moravian Academy at 6:00 pm.
Parents should pick up a name tag at the registration table located in the foyer of 7 East. Parents should enter the door closest to the corner and traffic light.
Student’s schedules will be available for parents that will include an S day schedule. The schedule will include a key that will have the teacher’s name, the course name, and the building and classroom where the course is taught.
Families that have students in multiple middle school grades will need to divide or determine which items they will attend.
