Dear Parents of the Class of 2018,
As our kids' Junior year draws to a close, we hope that the Parents' Association has provided you with plenty of information and support in the form of coffees and programs - thank you for attending them, as we know it was a busy year! Over the summer, the Post High School Counseling Department will be offering plenty of opportunities for college essay writing and common application workshops - please see their webpage for dates and more information.
And, as the two of us prepare to transition into the roles of Co-Presidents of the NTPA for the year ahead, we want to thank all of you for the support you've given us over the last three years and thank the dedicated parents on the Class of 2018 Board who have been a pleasure to work with. We welcome Terri Lorenz and Karen Tragos into the roles of Co-Chairs of our Class Board for our students' senior year and wish them all the best!
Enjoy time with your family during this wonderful season of summer in Chicago!
Tika & Claire
NTPA Co-Chairs, Class of 2018
