Curriculum Night, October 2nd, 2014

All Shorewood High School parents and guardians are invited to the 2014 Curriculum Night on Thursday, October 2nd. This is an important opportunity to form a partnership with your student’s teachers, to visit the campus and to hear about  activities available to Shorewood students.  Current students, staff and parents will be available to help you explore and see for yourself what Shorewood has to offer.  Ample parking is available from school entrances on 175th and Fremont Avenue North.

Please join us to learn about the academic program, experience your student’s class schedule, meet the teachers, and hear about your student’s individual courses.  The evening program begins at  6:45 – 6:55 for parents and guardians whose students have period 0 or 7 classes.  Please report directly to the room listed on the student’s schedule.  The standard program begins at 7:00 – 7:15 with a school community meeting in the T-Bird Gym.  From there all classes, period 1-6 meet for 10 minutes each, providing families the opportunity to learn about SWHS teachers and the curriculum.

Our annual mid-evening video program highlights the annual PTSA “Pass the Hat” fundraiser and membership drive that supports classroom grants, help for struggling students and families,  and staff appreciation.   Our amazing PTSA makes it all happen through this one fundraiser, so we  hope you will plan to participate.
