Attention 8th Grade Students & Parents! We are rapidly approaching that time of year where New Trier makes a concerted effort to reach out to 8th grade students and their families to provide them with information about the articulation process. Below are links to three important documents:
You are invited to participate in the Parent-Teacher Conferences to be held on: Wednesday, October 23, 2013, from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 24, 2013, from 3:00-7:00 p.m.
The online registration period is: 9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 7, 2013, until 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 21, 2013.
Who/What: You are invited to our First Parent Coffee of the year.
When: Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 9:00 AM
Where: Joseph M. Porto Community Center at Marie Murphy School.
Why: To dialogue with Mr. Palcer and Team Leaders about school events,
programs, policies, practices, goals, initiatives, and whatever else
you would like to converse about.
No RSVP required—We hope you can come.
It’s almost here! The countdown to school beginning can be measured in hours rather than days, weeks and months and I could not be more excited (this place is boring without the kids here!)! And while I’m sure there is some griping and complaining amongst our returning students, I’m betting that getting back to school holds a bit more excitement than they are willing to admit!
Whether you have the most eager of children, or the most despondent, I’m happy to share that the staff and I are looking so forward to welcoming them, one and all, back to school on Monday morning!
Hope everyone enjoys this final weekend of summer vacation…
You are cordially invited to attend our Orientation program on Thursday, August 29, 2013. You will have the opportunity to move through your child’s schedule and meet all his/her teachers. While in your child’s first-period class, you will hear a brief, but very important, presentation from our room parents.
A copy of your child’s schedule will be made available to you just after you walk in the front doors, which you will need in order to navigate throughout the evening. Beginning in the main gym, the format for the evening will look something like this:
- Dr. Kevin Jauch – Supt. of Avoca Schools
- Mr. Matthew Palcer – Principal, Marie Murphy School
- Mrs. Donna Toops – Director, Pupil Services
6:50-7:05 1st Period
7:08-7:15 2nd Period
7:18-7:25 3rd Period
7:28-7:35 4th Period (8th Grade Lunch–Refreshments & Socialization)
7:38-7:45 5th Period (6th Grade Lunch–Refreshments & Socialization)
7:48-7:55 6th Period (7th Grade Lunch–Refreshments & Socialization)
7:58-8:05 7th Period
8:08-8:15 8th Period
8:18-8:25 9th Period
Please know that this evening is designed for parents only–therefore, we ask you to respect that intent by not bringing any children with you. Thank you! We are eager to share information with you concerning all of our programs and extra-curricular activities–and we know this is going to be a great school year for all students, as there are so many new and exciting adventures that lie ahead.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
