High School Fair, 10/17

LaSalle II parents!

LaSalle II would like to formally invite all ​middle school families to attend our upcoming high school fair this Saturday, October 17, from 10:00-11:30am at our school. Dozens of schools will be in attendance, including neighborhood, selective enrollment, magnet, charter, and private high schools. The best way to explore options for high school is to talk to these representatives.

Our counselor, Ms. Sapieka, will also be presenting on the high school application process in Chicago, as well as making appointments for upcoming one-on-one meetings as needed for students and families.

For additional high school information, please visit Ms. Sapieka’s classroom page HERE. You can also get to the counselor page from the staff page of the LaSalle II website or by clicking ‘school counselor’ from the ‘families’ tab on the website.

Hope to see you!
