THE Wilmette Block Party Returns!


YOU ARE INVITED: New Trier Open House Saturday, September 9 | 2-4 p.m.
All community members, friends, and family of all ages are invited to New Trier High School’s Winnetka Campus on Saturday, September 9 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for an open house and dedication ceremony. This school year New Trier opened its new East Side Academic and Athletic Facility featuring new gyms, a new indoor 6-lane track, 14 new classrooms, a climbing wall, cardio and strength training areas, a spirit shop, and more! Come check out the new spaces during this community celebration featuring student performances, self-guided tours, demonstrations, and refreshments. The event begins at 2 p.m. with a ribbon cutting outside the doors to the new Competition Gymnasium, followed by a brief dedication ceremony. The building will be open for self-guided tours until 4 p.m. Parking is available in the lots along Essex Road and Trevian Way. New Trier’s Winnetka Campus is located at 385 Winnetka Avenue. Please join us!

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! Lunch looks a bit different this year, so please be sure to review Avoca West's and Marie Murphy's lunch protocols here. A notable difference is Avoca West has moved from a pre-order to a bin system. 

The price of a lunch this year is $5.25. This includes an entrée, side, fruit, vegetable, and milk or 8oz water. We will also have several a la carte items for sale at Marie Murphy. 

Visit our dedicated lunch page for more information, including free lunch forms, how to add funds to your student's account, access menus, review allergy disclaimers, and more!
