Parents sit at their children’s desks…

Parents sit at their children’s desks at Back to School Night! A good way to ‘walk a mile in their shoes…’

Nearly 300 parents came out to the school on Friday nightAugust 23,  to go through a typical day’s routine at their child’s school. Attending each class in the same order as their child would, they spent 10- 15 mins each learning about the teacher’s expectations from their students and discussing topics like curriculum, labs, testing, etc.

    I am very enthusiastic about this school year because of the willingness of the staff, parents and students to lead MSA to a great position in Santa Clara. In fact, The number of parents who visited our school is greater than the last year back to school night, and It shows how much important education is for every single member of MSA. .Please keep supporting PTO and students en MSA according to your possibility.

  2. Thank you, Elizabeth, for your positive and enthusiastic support. The staff, parents and students working together can only lead the school to greater achievements. Together, we can!
