ETHS plans conversations with parents of future students


Evanston Township High School will hold community conversations with “Future Wildkit” parents and families starting next month.

ETHS Superintendent Eric Witherspoon will host the sessions several Evanston/Skokie School District 65 elementary schools.

Parents and family members of children who attend public, private and parochial schools or who are home-schooled in the Evanston/Skokie school district are encouraged to attend the meetings.

Staff members from ETHS will be available to answer questions, help refine understanding of key issues, and build awareness of the school’s current efforts.

Since each student’s high school experience is unique, ETHS also encourages participation by families who have enrolled children at ETHS in the past and may be sending their younger children to ETHS.
