Post-high school planning video for sophomores
You are invited to watch this
by New Trier post-high school counselor Tom Shorrock about the planning process for rising juniors.
The sophomore NTPA board had hoped to host Mr. Shorrock at its spring Parent Coffee, but the state's stay-at-home order canceled those plans. In response, Mr. Shorrock was kind enough to put together this video, in which he talks about post-high school planning in the context of COVID-19, including testing, timelines and resources.

New Trier Web Store
. The deadline is Aug. 7, and the cost is $17. The test is optional but provides entry into competitions for national scholarships and recognition programs.

Thank you to our class advisers!
Students aren't the only ones feeling stressed these days. Their advisers have added a lot to their workload, primarily trying to support our kids remotely. Though this new environment has been challenging, advisers are striving to stay connected with their students and offer help to those struggling to adapt. Please take a moment to thank your student's adviser for their extra efforts in keeping up with our kids' well-being.
