Welcome parents of the Class of 2022! We hope you've enjoyed a fun and relaxing summer with family and friends and are ready to begin this new adventure called New Trier.

- Go-to-School Night on Oct. 4.
- Parent University Straight Talk on Oct. 23.
- Parent/teacher conferences on Nov. 7-8.

Hope to see you at an event, and feel free to contact us at
if you have any questions. We look forward to a great four years.
Parent University: Stress Reduction Toolbox
9-10:30 a.m. Oct. 15, C234 Northfield Campus
Our students are facing pressures from many angles - academics, peer groups, social media, extracurricular activities, decisions after high school. How can we best help them navigate? Come join fellow New Trier parents to discuss strategies to help keep our kids' stress (as well as our own) in check. For more information, please contact Parent University co-chair Sydney Clark at
We will host three Parent Coffees per year. This is a time to meet other Class of 2022 parents and participate in a discussion of a relevant topic. Our Freshman Advisery Co-Chairs, Sue Ellen Haak and Mark Howard, will lead our first topic -- vaping.
The coffee will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Oct. 16 at the home of Kathy Kennedy, 1633 Highland Ave., Wilmette. Click
