Lincoln-Way Welcomes Parents Back to School
Friday, August 28, 2015

Hundreds of parents attended Back to School Nights this week at each of Lincoln-Ways four high schools, receiving a glimpse into their childs high school experience. Back to School Nights were held August 25 at Lincoln-Way Central and Lincoln-Way North and August 26 at Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way West.

To kick off the events, Lincoln-Way High School principals provided welcoming remarks, introduced school administrators, and offered information about the culture and expectations of the high school.

When our students are ready to graduate from West, we want them to be able to determine where their path will lead them, said Lincoln-Way West Principal Dr. Monica Schmitt. We want as many doors open to them as possible.

Academic success is number one at Lincoln-Way and tonight you will meet our dedicated and caring teachers who are prepared to help your students succeed, said Dr. Mark Cohen, Principal of Lincoln-Way North.

The purpose of tonight is to experience Lincoln-Way North as your sons and daughters do on a daily basis, Cohen said. And parents -- no running in the halls.

During the popular events, parents were provided school maps to walk their students schedule, meet their teachers and spend nine minutes in each class to learn more about their childs education.

Our teachers cannot wait to share what your children will learn in their classes this year, said Lincoln-Way East Principal Dr. Sharon Michalak.

Principals provided parents with important information about College Application Nights, Breakfast with the Principal, Homecoming and Parent Teacher Conferences.

We want your student to get engaged in sports, music, clubs and all of the school events that create a positive, memorable high school experience, said Lincoln-Way Central Principal Dr. Steve Provis. We have something for every student and we encourage them all to make the most of their time in high school.

Parents had an opportunity to purchase spirit wear and students were stationed throughout the school to provide parents with directions to class. The Lincoln-Way Foundation was also on hand with dream raffle tickets and school calendars.
