LIVING THE NEW TRIER MOTTO AFTER GRADUATION
Soon our Seniors will be leaving the halls of New Trier to head for new adventures and challenges in college and life in general. For many parents of Seniors, you too will be saying goodbye to New Trier as your children move forward. As you do so, we encourage you all to carry the New Trier motto with you in your next phases of life.
The power of a good motto can guide your conduct and help you remember what is truly important when life gets busy or overwhelming. New Trier's motto of committing minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion, and lives to the service of humanity sums up what we all should aspire to. Dig deeper to understand, empathize with and give-back to those around you and, in so doing, you will be applying the New Trier motto in your journey ahead.
Winter Carnival, the Class of 2019's major fundraiser for their Habitat for Humanity project, will take place on Friday, March 15 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm at the Winnetka Campus. It's a fun night to see the community come together and enjoy the games and activities created by our Seniors. We could use some parent volunteers to help sell tickets during the Carnival and support our Seniors. Please click
