RYE, N.Y. -- Joe Campos and Thereza Cajas sat in their daughter Kayleigh's classroom at Osborn School to listen to her first grade teacher Amy Reitzig talk about the class. "I think it's good to touch base and meet the teachers," said Cajas. "Just to see where we're at." Osborn School held its annual "Back to School Night" Wednesday for parents to visit their children's classrooms, meet teachers and learn about the curriculum for the year. Reitzig went over the different areas the first graders would focus on such as handwriting and counting change. She also gave a demonstration of the classroom's smartboard and put on a slideshow with each student's picture and a handwritten sentence from each one about what they wanted to learn. Kayleigh wrote that she wanted to learn about bears. Reitzig also had parents write two personal notes to their kids, one to express love and support and the other to tell them about their memories from being in first grade. Campos colored in a red heart with a crayon on his daughter's note. "This was really nice," said Cajas. "And the presentation was very detailed."
