Blytheville High Welcomes Students and Parents Back to School

August 19, 2005--Posted at 3:00 p.m. CST

 

BLYTHEVILLE--Blytheville High School, like other public schools, opened it’s halls to students on Friday, but what set them apart is that parents were invited too.  It’s all a part of the school’s back to school program called, “First Thing’s First.”   It’s the only high school in the state to invite parents to tag along with their students on the first day back to school.

“Well I think it’s good because all the parents get to come together at the beginning of the year and meet each other and meet your [child’s] teacher,” the mother of a Blytheville High School student said. 

 

This is the third year the school has put on “First Thing’s First.”  It’s a program administrators say gets it parents more involved in their children’s education.

For more information on “First Thing’s First,” or other programs like it, contact Blytheville High School Principal Suzanne Kenner at cskenner@yahoo.com.
