High School Letters “Pre-Show” 2016
I figure if the Oscars can have a pre-show, then the High School notification process can as well. SEHS letters are 2 weeks away.
I am curious to see where people’s heads are at if you have an 8th grader applying to high school. Is the stress level high? What are the top choices? Did you cast a wide net? Is anyone embracing the neighborhood high school? Anyone consider a charter?
I was fortunate enough to meet with HSObsessed this week who talked me off a moving-to-Evanston ledge by convincing me (just as I convince others) that there are plenty of good options in the city. That we can fulfill our dream of raising city kids who get a good high school education. I know this rationally, but the news about CPS budgets wears me down at times.
Feel free to share any pointers on dealing with lackadaisical pre-teens during 7th grade.
