Thursday, August 25, 2016

On Tuesday, August 23, Lincoln-Way West hosted “Back to School Night” for parents and guardians of Warriors. Principal Monica Schmitt in began the night with a presentation in the gymnasium, where she introduced members from the administration and staff. Dr. Schmitt then spoke of the Warriors’ past successes and upcoming school year.

“Our goal as a school is to open as many doors as possible for your child. When our students are ready to graduate from West, we want them to be able to determine where their path will lead them. We want as many doors open to them as possible,” she said.

Principal Schmitt then discussed upcoming testing changes in the state of Illinois. Students will take the SAT, which will translate favorably from the consistently high ACT scores earned by District 210 students. “Students who work diligently preparing for these tests--identifying their strengths and weaknesses and working to improve their scores--realize amazing results,” she said.

After Dr. Schmitt’s introduction, teachers met with parents and guardians as they walked through the schedule of their student’s classes. In each classroom, they received a brief summary of the course. Attendees were able to ask questions to teachers and administrators throughout the night, as well as purchase Warrior calendars.

“We had an amazing turnout and we are always so pleased to see the student support for our Warriors. We are excited for a great year,” said Principal Schmitt.
