Welcome to high school, parents! This is an exciting time and there is so much to learn – for both you and your child.

To help you get started, we asked dozens of parents of high school seniors three important questions:

1) What do you know now that you wish you knew when your child was a freshman?
2) If you had it all to do over again, what would you do differently to help your child navigate the high school years?
3) What advice would you give a parent of a new high school student?

On Thursday, May 19 from 7 – 8:30 pm, District 204 Parent & Community Engagement Specialists will summarize this insightful advice, to help you begin high school parenting with more confidence and a better idea of what to expect and how to prepare. The presentation will be held in the Forum Room at the Birkett Freshman Center, 3220 Cedar Glade Drive, Naperville.
