“Each school’s open house is an opportunity to allow parents and the community to come and visit the classrooms, look at student work and really celebrate the end of the school year and feel a part of the process,” explained South Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Geoff Yantz. “It provides an opportunity for the students to show off their work, too, for the parents and grandparents, or whomever may be visiting the classroom. It’s a wonderful culmination as we get closer to the end of the school year.”
