Welcome

Welcome! If you have a student at Libertyville High School...then YOU are a Parent CAT! The ParentCATS is an organization that serves the student body, supports school policy and partners with the staff of LHS. ParentCATS seeks to support a positive educational and high school experience at LHS by enhancing school-home communication and providing volunteer services.  All parents or guardians of a LHS student are automatically members.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

NEXT PARENTCATS MEETING - WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9 IN ROOM 1107 at 7PM
Great meeting in November with Dr. Brenda Nelson, director of Health & Wellness, and English Department Chair Paul Reiff who came to talk to us about Writers Week! Please join us after break for our January meeting on activity at LHS and the district!

MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVES!
This semester we will focus on educating and discussing mental health among teens, and how parents can have discussions with their students. "Angst" is a film on teen anxiety. We will show the film at Vernon Hills on February 19th and at LHS on February 21st.  You can view clips of the film HERE. More info to come.

Also, there is an interest for LHS parents to come together and discuss anxiety and mental health further and to share concerns, ideas, resources with one another. Please contact Joy Bach at joypbach@comcast.net if you are interested in getting involved.
