Evanston Township High School’s PTSA hosts its first program of the 2011-12 school year, “Resources at ETHS,” Oct. 4, from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

“Resources at ETHS” is an annual PTSA event that provides ETHS students and parents with an opportunity to meet staff and faculty, ask questions, and increase understanding of school services.

The program includes an overview of academics, medical and emotional student health, extracurricular activities, safety, and post-secondary school planning.

PTSA President Cherie Hansen says she finds that this type of informal presentation is very helpful to ETHS families, stating, “We have found that in this relaxed setting, parents are excited to understand where and how they can find the correct person(s) to help with all of their student’s needs.”
