  • "I love meeting parents again," history teacher Steve Guevara said. "We go to back to school night and get a chance to introduce what the year looks like. But then Celebration of Learning is where parents get to come in to see what the end of the year looks like and what's on the horizon for their child. And then what eighth grade is going to look like and ninth grade. It's a fun way for me to reconnect with the parents and to get them into history like their kids."
