MAHS Open House / Curriculum Night Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On Wednesday, September 15, 2021, Mars Area High School Faculty and Administration will host Open House/Parent Curriculum Night from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Homeroom begins at 6:00 PM. You will have the opportunity to meet your child's teachers.  You will be given a brief summary of the curriculum, student expectations, and an overall view of how the class operates.  A brief question and answer session may occur. Each class will be about nine minutes long with four minutes between classes.

Because our evening's format will be structured similar to your child's school day, it is imperative that you arrive by 6:00 PM for Homeroom.   Please be sure to know your child's homeroom number. During any study hall period, you are invited to the cafeteria.  Guidance counselors and administrators will be in the cafeteria throughout the evening to answer your questions.

Information packets, your child's schedule and building maps will be distributed when you enter the high school. High school staff will be available to help direct you to your destinations.  Please enter the high school through the main doors.
