Hamilton’s Get Connected offers talk on prep for college

The Hamilton School District’s Get Connected Parent Network invites parents to hear from Patti Mitchell, who will speak on “Helping Your Collegebound Child” Feb. 17 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be in the library at Hamilton High School, W220 N6151 Town Line Road, Sussex.

This presentation is intended for middle school parents who want to help their children prepare for success in college. It will cover preparation, study habits, what colleges are looking for, how applicants are evaluated and tips for success in college.

An experienced parent educator and a certified teacher, Mitchell is a member of the Wisconsin Association for College Admission Counseling and the Wisconsin School Counselor Association and has served on its governing board. She serves on the WCTC External Diploma Advisory Committee and on the Selective Service Board for Waukesha County.
