Dear Parents of the Class of 2018,
First quarter is in our rearview mirrors already! Hopefully you enjoyed speed conferencing with your Senior's teachers...a workout that compares to a very productive visit to the gym! If your meetings were too brief always know that you can set up additional time with teachers if need be. Our students are well underway organizing the traditional New Trier Senior class project - raising the funds and building a house for Habitat for Humanity for a family in Waukegan. This is New Trier's 18th year of involvement with Habitat for Humanity. All students contribute to the fundraising efforts. The main events are the Tom Deluca show on Friday December 15, Feast Week (date tbd), the annual Winter Carnival (February 6) and the online auction that occurs in April. Ask you student about Habitat! Happy Holidays to all - enjoy the hustle and the bustle!
Terri Lorenz and Karen Tragos

IMPORTANT REMINDERS AND INFORMATION
AtoZ Directory Coming in October!
Once New Trier has all student data verified via
InfoSnap, this will be converted into the new directory and made available to
all current families in mid to late October. Every household will receive an
AtoZ directory Login ID and Password to access the Online AtoZ Directory at that
time. Please use that to login and get started on the AtoZ app. Directories
are no longer printed in an effort to protect family information from
solicitations, as well as to be more green.
