Class of 2020

Greetings from the NTPA Class of 2020 Board!

We hope your students have had a wonderful sophomore year! Here at the NTPA, we offered a variety of events and programs to help make the transition to the Winnetka campus a fruitful one, including these highlights:

  • The opening Sophomore Parent Coffee in September with Sophomore Adviser Chairs Julie Smith and Ted Koulentes, who shared information about on-campus resources, testing, and more.
  • The NTPA program "Straight Talk" in October, when a panel shared valuable information about teen risk behaviors and what New Trier and parents can do to help
  • LEAD's presentation of "Right Under Your Nose: Signs of Teen Alcohol and Drug Use" in November. Click here  for more details and to view the video that was presented.
  • The second Sophomore Parent Coffee in January featuring Tim Hayes, assistant superintendent for student services, discussing teen stress and anxiety.
  • The NT Parent Book Group, which offered the opportunity for freshman and sophomore parents to read and discuss How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims.
  • A final Sophomore Parent Coffee in May, held in the evening, at which parents heard from Tom Shorrock, post high school counselor, about the new challenges ahead for our students during junior year.

We hope you found a way to get involved with the NTPA this year. To stay current on upcoming events and take advantage of parent opportunities:
