The public is invited to attend the annual “Parent-to-Parent” program, sponsored by ETHS Parents Engaged, ethsparentsengaged.com, to be held from 7 to 8 p.m. on May 7 in Room S-214 at Evanston Township High School, 1600 Dodge Ave.
Parents and guardians of next fall’s ETHS freshman class are invited to hear from, and speak to, parents of current students about high school life, including course options, extra-curricular activities, college planning, social events and more.
Experienced parents will be on hand to answer questions, including how to effectively use resources at ETHS and how best to navigate the high school years.
“This is a great opportunity for parents to come and ask questions they might not otherwise be able to find the answers to very easily,” said Parents Engaged steering committee member Jane McCarthy, who is helping to coordinate the event. “When parents engage with other parents, there’s an immediate connection. They can get their questions answered from an experienced parent’s perspective and eliminate the guesswork about any number of topics related to their own student’s future experience”
Parents of older ETHS students are welcome. No reservations are necessary, and refreshments will be served.
