Future Don Night

February 23, 2017

While no single visit could encompass all the wonderful things going on at El Rancho, Thursday night a few hundred 8th graders and their parents tried to see at least a sampling of them. Future Don Night began with an introductory session in the gym with Principal Lyons. Afterwards, the visitors were released to move around the campus based on their areas of interest. In the quad and cafeteria were tables with reps from sports, clubs, classes, academic departments, and other campus programs. In the faculty center, parents could get some individual tutoring on "data confirmation;" and in nearby classrooms, visitors could take in short presetations on additional special topics.
