In less than a month, our Seniors will be graduating from New Trier! Their four years here have been a time of incredible growth - physically, intellectually, and emotionally. Just think of how much they've changed since their first day on the Northfield campus. As the NTPA Board for the Class of 2019, we've enjoyed watching their development and assisting the parents of this class with your connections to New Trier. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered your time to the NTPA throughout these four years to ensure that our kids had a safe, fun and memorable high school experience. We couldn't have done it without you! We wish our Seniors and their parents all the best in your future endeavors. Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
Here is some information about the last month of school that you may find help.

YEAR-END ADVISERY PARTIES
Senior parents will soon be contacted about year-end Advisery parties for each Senior Advisery. Your NTPA Room Representatives are working with the Senior Advisers and students to plan a party for each Senior Advisery. These parties usually occur in the final two weeks before Graduation and are a nice way for our students to say farewell to those who have been in their Adviseries over the last four years. Please watch for emails from your Room Representatives about ways that you can contribute to make the parties successful.
The Seniors' last day of school will be Thursday, May 23. On Friday, May 24, they will return to New Trier briefly to celebrate Trevia Day! This is when Seniors receive their yearbooks and have a chance to make final connections with their friends and teachers. Many Seniors dress in neon clothing or costumes to mark the occasion. They may only enter New Trier using the doors off of Essex Road by the tennis courts. Trevia Day starts at 8:15am and lasts until 9:30am, when Seniors must leave the campus. Refreshments will be provided by the NTPA.
