PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. It was all about a sense of community at the Bedford Road School's Back to School Night.
Parents of children in kindergarten through second grade were invited to Bedford for the annual Back to School Night, where they were able to learn about the curriculum and other aspects of the elementary school. Mary Fox-Alter, superintendent of the Pleasantville Union Free School District, spoke of the importance of parents being involved in the school.
"We want all parents to get a sense of what a day is like for their child," Fox-Alter said. "To see what a child's classroom, the teacher, and instruction is like,"
Principal Peggy Galotti said she wants parents to be familiar with their child's education.
"Parents should have a sense of the learning community here and what a typical day is like for their child so they can better understand their education" Galotti said.
Galotti urged all parents to communicate with their child at home and stay involved with what they were learning on a daily basis. Parents also had the opportunity to ask questions to Galotti about various topics before proceeding to their child's classroom.
Fox-Alter said she hoped that each parent left feeling like they were part of the Bedford Road School community.
"I hope parents feel as if they are a part of this," Fox-Alter said. "Our goal is to be very open, warm and welcoming."
