Parents and students alike gathered together in the cafeteria to attend the first annual New Families Meeting.  

The meeting, which took place on Tuesday, Aug. 29, was intended to give upperclassmen families new to the school a taste of what’s in store.  

“We have families, including military families, who come from all over and know nothing about Plant,” assistant principal David Webb said. “Hopefully the meeting will help them learn more.”  

Principal Johnny Bush was also present at the meeting, speaking on what draws families to the school time and time again.  

“I’ve been all over and I’ve never seen parent involvement like I have here… Parents are the key to public education,” Bush said. “Plant is that gold standard- everyone wants to be that school.”  

“Kids have an option here [on what school to attend] and they still choose to come to Plant,” Bush continued. “We’re one of the oldest schools in the district here, and you wouldn’t know it. The kids take care of it.”  

Representatives from groups such as E-Board, ROTC and Chorus took part in the meeting with short presentations explaining their groups. The Pink Panthers, an all-girls a cappella group from Chorus, also performed a song for the families.  

Parents said they found the meeting to be helpful, and there are plans to host another meeting. 

“We will try to do this again next year and bring more families out,” Bush said.
