The hallways were recently buzzing with activity at Union Springs Middle School and High School as families and students stopped by for open houses.
Students and parents had an opportunity to talk with teachers, tour the building and explore some of the vendor tables set up throughout the building. For middle school principal Breana Mullen, open house is a great opportunity to meet with families and welcome them to the school.
“Open House is a great way to build the relationships between home and school which are integral to our students' success,” Mullen said. “I loved watching students' faces light up as they showed their families a special project they worked on, a bulletin board they helped to create, their locker, and all of their classrooms.”
High school principal Jason Dentel said the open house provides families and teachers the platform to have meaningful and important conversations.
“Open house is an opportunity for families to meet the people working with their students. I overheard some great conversations and myself got to meet many of your families,” he said.
