Parents of prospective students of University Park Elementary School in Hyattsville will have the opportunity to talk to teachers and the school’s principal about the school at the open house scheduled for 8:30 to 10 a.m. Friday.
The Parent Teacher Association will hold the event, which will feature tours of the school, some singing by current students led by the school’s music teacher, and a PowerPoint presentation by Principal Nancy Schickner. Parents will have the chance to ask questions that will be answered by a first-grader and kindergarten teacher as well.
“The parents feel very at ease by the time that they leave,” Schickner said. “They have a good idea about what the school is about. It makes them feel so much better to just to know what is going on.”
