We Want Your Input – October 2

  • How can we help parents keep up with what is going on in and around the school?
  • How can we bring parents together to suggest improvements to the high school experience for all students?
  • Should we provide programs and information about trends in education and/or adolescent development?

Community Conversations with ETHS

For the third consecutive school year, Evanston Township High School (ETHS) District 202 will host a series of Community Conversations, a series of discussions that allow stakeholders to engage in a meaningful dialogue about the high school. Prospective or new ETHS families, District 202 community members, business owners, and people who work in Evanston/Skokie organizations or businesses are invited to join District 202 Superintendent Eric Witherspoon for the 2013 Community Conversations.

Staff members from ETHS will be available to answer questions, help refine understanding of key issues, and build awareness of the school’s current efforts. Since each student’s high school experience is unique, ETHS also encourages participation by families who have enrolled children at ETHS in the past and may be sending their younger children to ETHS.

ETHS Community Conversations are free and open to the public.

The fall series of Community Conversations will be held at three community centers:

  • Wednesday, September 18, 2013 | 7:00-8:30pm – Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge Avenue, Evanston, IL 60202
  • Wednesday, October 30, 2013 | 7:00-8:30pm – Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd., Evanston, IL 60201
  • Wednesday, November 20, 2013 | 7:00-8:30pm – Fleetwood-Jourdain Center, 1655 Foster Street, Evanston, IL 60201
