The taco truck arrived late, but a disaster was avoided and delicious food still welcomed hungry students and parents for Mt. Sac ECA’s Back to School Night (BTSN) last week on Thursday August 29th.

Students Guided Their Parents Through a Day in Their School Lives

Pomona Catering was asked back after their amazing food service at last year’s BTSN; they served chicken, beef and al pastor street tacos while music played in the background through the speakers of ASB’s sound system. Principal Leuthold gave a thrilling speech to the audience of freshman and sophomore students and their families. Teachers and staff were also present, along with the Director of Secondary Education, Marc Trovatore.

After the speech, parents went from classroom to classroom being students for the night; some even participated by guiding their
parents through a day in their school lives.

Yvonne Goreen, mother of freshman student Sophia Goreen, told The Chronicle, “I thought it was a great night, and enjoyed meeting my daughter’s teachers!” Many parents seemed pleased with the opportunity to meet staff and get a feel for campus.

Students were also excited about being able to show off their school to family. “My favorite thing about back to school night,” said Ms. Abigail Vargas, freshmen, “was when my mom signed up for the Booster Club because she is helping the school.” Fundraising booths were also present for ASB. Some of the money from the Taco Truck will also be donated back to the school for the benefit of the students.

Ultimately, everyone agreed that Back to School Night was a great success!
