Cairo High School open house Monday is a family affair

Cairo High School will host its annual fall open house Monday, but it will not be the routine event of years past.
CHS Principal Chris Lokey and the high school faculty are planning a family-centered event designed for students, parents and school personnel to fellowship and build relationships in addition to enjoying food and fun.
Parents may begin picking up the class schedules of their student at 5:45 p.m. in the lobby of the CHS auditorium. At 6 p.m. Lokey will welcome parents and students and conduct a brief meeting in the auditorium where open house procedures will be explained.
Teachers will be available for visits with parents and students from 6 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Each academic teacher will provide parents with a class syllabus.
Then at 6:30 p.m. the faculty, parents, and students will gather on the front lawn of the school where tents will be set up and booths representing various clubs and organizations as well as departmental booths will be placed.
During the evening, parents and students will participate in a scavenger hunt. Clues will be provided and prizes will be awarded to the most keen hunters.
Also several “rocks” will be hidden around campus and can be turned in for the chance to win a door prize. One of the special rocks will be good for a free copy of the 2018 Raconteur yearbook.
A light meal will be served picnic style and other games will be played. At 7:15 p.m., families are invited to see the cartoon feature “Sing” in the auditorium.
“The movie is something the younger kids will enjoy and we hope that younger brothers and sisters of our high school students will join mom and dad at Monday’s open house,” Lokey said.
Monday’s event was originally planned for Aug. 14 but was rescheduled due to rain. In the event of rain next Monday night, activities will be moved indoors, according to school officials.
“We are trying something a little different this year. The faculty has really worked hard to help pull this together. We hope that entire families will come be with us Monday night,” Lokey said.
