Orientation set for new ETHS parents

Parents of incoming students at Evanston Township High School are invited to attend a free two-session program, sponsored by the school, that provides detailed answers to questions they might be asking.

Called “Access ETHS for Parents,” the program, piloted last year, provides information on academic requirements, first-year expectations, school leaders and their roles, school communication channels, student services, safety issues, student activities, and how best to support students as they transition to high school.

The first session, “Getting To Know ETHS,” is offered four times: Saturday, April 28, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.; Thursday, May 3 (conducted in Spanish), 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Thursday, May 10, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Saturday, May 12, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Included is a tour of the high school.

The second session, “Getting Involved at ETHS,” will be Thursday, June 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and  will feature presentations by the ETHS athletic director and the school’s student activities director, who will provide information on how to get involved with sports and activities at ETHS. This session does not include a school tour, but is followed by a Sports/Activities Fair in the school’s field house.

Registration is required by either calling the Student Supports Office at (847) 424-7043, or by completing the online form.
