Campuses Connect with Parents at Goals Night
Beaumont ISD hosted Goals Night at middle and elementary campuses for parents to meet the teachers and hear goals for the 2019-20 school year. The annual event is a chance for parents to see student’s work, hear campus initiatives and check out opportunities to get involved. “The event was a huge success with crowds at the middle schools ranging from approximately 200-600 parents,” said Executive Director of Secondary Administration Randall Maxwell. “The information was presented in a timely and skillful way. Students were leading their parents to the classes and everyone was smiling.”
The District’s top priorities were stressed at each event, including attendance rates, academic achievement and TEA scores. At elementary campuses, literacy was a focus point. Administrators shared the importance of the percentage of students reading on grade level by the end of second grade to provide a groundwork for more success as they progress through school.
"Goals Night is an opportunity to build positive relationships with our parents and create a home to school connection. In order to reach our district and campus goals, we need every parent to partner with their child's school," said Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Dr. Anita Frank. "It was exciting to see all of the parents in attendance at Elementary Goal's Night. Our administrators and teachers did an outstanding job presenting parents with the information they need to help their child have a successful school year."
Campuses also showcased their choir, band and cheerleaders. Many business and community partners set up tables with giveaways and information, while several PTA groups held meetings before the event. Campus leaders also encouraged parents to sign up as a district volunteer. BISD high schools will hold Goals Night at 6:30 p.m. September 9.
