Glen Burnie parents can go back to school tonight


September 23, 1998|By Bonita Formwalt | Bonita Formwalt,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

PARENTS OF Glen Burnie High School students are invited to the annual Back-To-School Night at 7 p.m. tonight in the auditorium.

Activities will begin with a welcome statement from Principal David Hill and the introduction of school administrators, counselors and PTSO officers. After an abbreviated version of their child's schedule, parents will meet teachers, who will provide overviews of the semester's course and answer general questions. Specific concerns about individual performance can be addressed by scheduling a conference.

During the student's scheduled lunch period, counselors and administrators will answer questions in the cafeteria.

Janet Pogar, PTSO president, will be at the school to register parents for the association's membership drive. The cost is $5 per family, with proceeds to benefit academic and school improvement programs.

Pogar will also be selling tickets for the sports event of the season -- a rematch between the famed Harlem Wizards basketball team and the Glen Burnie High School Gophertrotters, 7 p.m. Nov. 13 in the main gym. After the success and fun of last year's game, Pogar is confident that the Glen Burnie team of teachers, students and parents will prevail against the slightly taller and generally more athletic professionals. Tickets, purchased in advance, are $8 for general admission and $5 for students and senior citizens.

For information on PTSO membership or to buy tickets for the Harlem Wizards game, call Pogar, 410-768-9556.

For general information on Back-To-School Night or to schedule a conference, call the school office, 410-761-8950.
