Local School Celebrates American Education Week

Posted: Updated:

In honor of American Education Week, Brooke High School invited the parents to join their students for a day of classes.

Brooke High school kicked off American Education week by inviting parents to school so they could  come get a feel for their kid's everyday schedule. Parents sat in class, walked the halls and even ate lunch with their children.

"Today was wonderful. We had 113 parents participate and that might not seem like a lot when you look at a population of a little over 1000 at the high school level, we think that's great," says Principal Toni Shute.

Many parents including Bonnie Bowers believes that attending events like this is helpful in their child's future.

"Education is way too important and I mean this is part of their future and its extremely important," says Bonnie Bowers of Follansbee.


Brooke High School will continue with American Education Week by having an open house Tuesday night, a pancake appreciation lunch for all faculty Wednesday and student government exchange day on Thursday.
