‘What to Expect’ Coffees

South PTSO organizes three to five coffees per grade throughout the academic year. The program has been running since 2009, and it arose out of the need for a common venue for parents to raise concerns and to share tips about what in their children’s high school life works, what does not, and to form a support community for parents.

A “What to Expect” Coffee is usually held at a host South family home, usually from 8:00-9:30AM, sometimes from 7:30-9:00PM on a weekday. Issues raised by parents at these meetings are typically answered and if not they are channeled to the school.

A parent volunteer serves as a Grade Level Class Liaison. The liaison’s role is to coordinate “What to Expect” Coffees and chaperones for grade-level events.
