REACH Parent Group (monthly) Meeting – Friday, December 13, 8:30 am (Sandburg’s Maker Space.)
Meeting focus - Freshman course selection conversation - In addition to covering a quick shortlist of regular business, we will have some high school parents on hand to discuss openly what they've learned and what they wish they knew before finalizing classes for their student's freshman year. Our goal is to both share thoughts from what's already been presented at York on this topic and also add to that with additional insights from York parents who can provide a “been-there, done-that” perspective.
Join us if you missed any of recent sessions at York or would like to know more about what's ahead for your student(s)! We’ll point you in the right direction to the ample resources regarding selection of AP (Yes, there is a freshman AP course in the offering) and honors coursework and "navigating life" at York.
*Are you a parent of a former REACH student (preferably now in 9th grade) or older? We’d love your input Your insight is invaluable and we welcome your attendance. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me (312) 286-4606 if you are able to join us and willing to share your experience. Many thanks for the consideration.
Please park in the north (back) parking lot, ENTER DOOR 7. You’ll sign-in/out at meeting so no need to go through the office. OPEN TO ALL parents. (Note, if you are arriving late, after 8:30 please come! but you’ll need to enter through Door #1, main entrance.)
