From the NTPA Presidents

Dear Trevian Parents:

On behalf of the New Trier Parents' Association (NTPA), it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year.   We extend a special welcome to the newest members of the New Trier High School family, the students and families of the Class of 2018.

The mission of the NTPA remains to promote connections, provide communication, and present opportunities for parents, which support and enhance the New Trier experience.  Every parent at New Trier is a member of the NTPA.  Inside these pages, you will find detailed information on all school programs hosted by the NTPA as well as events geared specifically towards your class.  We hope you will read the cover article written by our dedicated administrators.   We are extremely fortunate to have two principals committed to working collaboratively with students, faculty, staff and parents to achieve success at New Trier. 

In addition to this issue of the Parents' Press, each family will receive a winter and spring issue by mail as well as the monthly eNews via email. NTPA also publishes the student directory, which will be mailed in the fall.

For over a century, New Trier parents have played a vital role in maintaining a tradition of excellence at our school.  We offer thanks to all the parents who have volunteered and invite each of you to find a meaningful way to participate. Visit the NTPA tab on the newly revamped New Trier website www.newtrier.k12.il.us/parentsassociation.aspx and your class page to find ways to volunteer and up-to-date information.
