Back to School Night!

Back to School Night is a GREAT opportunity to market your program with parents.  I have a table set up with a tri-fold to display information about my Counseling Services program. Below is the middle section of my tri-fold presentation.

I also have brochures of community resources, parenting, study skills, and other hot topics for parents to peruse. It is ALWAYS a good idea to have tangible take-aways for parents.

This is a terrific chance for parents to see how wonderful you are.  Let your personality shine!   Make a personal connection with them by commenting about a POSITIVE experience you have had with their child.

A word to the wise.  Do not let one family monopolize your time.  This night is about meeting all the parents you can, and getting the word out about your program.  I have a sign up sheet on my table for parents to make appointments with me.

What are your Back to School Night plans?  How do you plan on connecting with parents?
