3. Early Morning Coffee Hours at Southeastern Regional
Parent-driven “Early Morning Coffee Hours” are held on the first Friday of the month at 7:30 a.m. in the school’s conference room. Meetings begin with delicious coffee and fresh pastries made at the school by Culinary Arts students. Next, parents enjoy informative presentations that include handouts, followed by discussions, questions and answers on a number of interesting and timely topics such as the following: What makes us so different from traditional high schools, and how does this benefit the student? What do we offer academically, and what do we expect from the students? What are Accuplacer, MCAS, Edline, Smartboards and Study Island? Why do we have a 9/10 program, and what does it offer? What is credit recovery? What is the work-based learning co-operative education, how can students qualify, and how does it benefit both the student and the local business involved? Sophia has extended her warm invitation to area parents: “Even if you do not have a student here and would like to join us, please do, and learn what we’re about”
