DHS to hold Parents’ Club meeting

Staff reports

Douglas High School Principal Bev Jeans wants to invite parents to the school.

The principal hopes many parents will get involved in the school’s Parents’ Club, an organization whose agenda will be determined by the parents.

“It’s a way for the parents to hear about specific programs and ask question so they will have a better understanding of things going on at the school,” Jeans said.

Jeans said the school has band booster and athletic booster clubs, but this group will have a different focus. The first meeting of the group was in May.

“The parents will generate the topics that will be covered at next month’s meeting,” Jeans said.

The first meeting of this year will be Sept. 8, at 4:30 p.m., at the school’s library.

That meeting will focus on school safety, staff, student and parent responsibility and state required tests.

Jeans said she will go over what the school is doing for school safety and what parents’ responsibilities are.

Jeans said because DHS students have to take both the state proficencies and TerraNova tests in the second week of October, parents will have an opportunity to get their questions about those tests answered.
