Newton parents, students invited to school open houses

COVINGTON — Even though students have had a rainy summer, perhaps spending most of it inside, the new school year won’t wait.

Newton County students are to report to schools Friday, Aug. 2, for the first day of the 2013-14 school year.

To help them and their families be better prepared, the Newton County School System has scheduled open house dates for each grade level.

• Elementary school open houses are scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. July 31;

• Middle school open houses are scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 1; and

• High school open houses are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 July 31.

Typically, open house times are when students and their parents can meet some of their teachers, see their classrooms, ask questions and get bus routes and class schedules.
