PARENT VISITATION DAY ~ OCTOBER 23 ~ MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Each year, the Alabama Department of Education designates October is Parent Visitation Month. The theme this year is “Home and School Partnerships: Empowering Students to Learn”.  The Tuscaloosa City Schools celebrate Parent Visitation Day to encourage parents to visit schools to support their children and build those vital relationships with teachers. It is a critical factor in determining the success of our students.

Each year TCS schools plan exciting and educational events and activities to engage our parents and show them what our schools are offering students.   These are the plans for Northridge Middle School:

October 23, 2019

    • Martin and Men (M and M) – Developing Male Mentors-  7:30 am – 9:30 am in the library
Share your questions, comments and concerns through the TCS Let's Talk portal!
The mission of the Tuscaloosa City Schools is to create and support a culture of high expectations for each and every student to achieve personal, academic and career excellence.
