Wednesday, February 1, Anderson Course Fair

9:30-11:15 am: Student tours and presentation

Private school students and students from schools other than our feeder schools coming on buses are asked to arrive by 9:10 am. Drop off is at the Theater off Cima Serena and pick up is in the front of the school. The program will end at 11:15 am. These students will be the first group to exit the Theater and will be taken to the front of the school for pick up. No reservation is required to attend.


Murchison, Kealing and Burnet Middle School eighth grade students will come by bus from school.

  

5:30-7:30 pm: Evening Course Fair for Students and Parents
Don't miss the opportunity to visit with Anderson counselors and core and elective teachers and learn all about the courses that Anderson has to offer. Elective courses will be in the gym, Core courses in the cafeteria. This is an Open House so come anytime between 5:30 and 7:30 pm.

 

Would it benefit you to do both, or are both events the same? 

The events are not the same, and we highly suggest you do both!  

The morning event is for the students to see the campus through student-led tours and attend a program in the Theater where they

   will watch a video and hear from our Principal and student leaders. 

The evening event is for parents and students to walk around and visit with the teachers about electives and core classes.
