ETHS to show off new facilities


Evanston Township High School is inviting the public to see some of the new and renovated spaces in the school at a Connections to Community Conference on Saturday, March 19.

The sessions, scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., will simulate classroom experiences covering a variety of topics.

Class offerings include “Our Universe” in the ETHS planetarium, “Fascinating, Inexplicable, Explicable” in a STEM lab, “Navigating Naviance” in The Hub, and “Geometry in Construction Presentation and Tour.”

In addition to classes led by ETHS teachers and staff, some classes will feature Northwestern University faculty and local elected officals.

Guest facilitators will include Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, ETHS District 202 Superintendent Eric Witherspoon, and Evanston/Skokie School District 65 Superintendent Paul Goren.

“We know that classroom visits are not possible during the school day, so we wanted to provide members of our community with a first-hand experience of ETHS resources in some small way,” remarked Peter Bavis, ETHS Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.

“This conference allows us to showcase some of our incredible spaces in action without disruptions to our students,” he said.

Guests are invited to sign up online for the classes they wish to attend. Registration is free and some classes will be held in newly renovated spaces. Space is limited so early registration is recommended.

Conference guests should enter through Door 31 behind the school. Check in will begin at noon. All classrooms are wheelchair and elevator accessible. Parking is available in the rear lot (enter off of Church or Lake Streets).
