Yesterday was Back to School Night for parents, where parents come to our school and meet their kids’ teachers. Before the parents went off to their children’s’ classrooms, they walked through the main hall and viewed different clubs and sports at South Lakes. We set up a booth so that parents could learn about the parent interest meeting this Saturday at 1 pm. We also shared the meeting times and website information, and collected a list of emails of interested students. We had NextGen at the table and we were showing people the 3D printed parts. We had a number of people sign up.
Events like these allow us to reach students and parents at our school and recruit new members. We had many conversations with parents, increasing interest in the FTC club at our school.
