Principal's Message

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Due to the extreme weather conditions, we missed three days of schools this winter.  These days must be made up and have resulted in a revised school calendar for the 2013-14 school year.  To see the new calendar, click here.

To stay informed of the latest TF North news and events, (scholarship opportunities, colleges recruiting, emergency school closings, etc.) download the Thornton Fractional District 215 app for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play. For specific instructions on how to download the app, click here.

Did you know that District 215 provides it's students Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 and email through Microsoft Office 365 during the length of enrollment in our school district?  To learn how to login to student email accounts and to download Microsoft Office 2013, click on this link.

If your child has not successfully completed a non-repeater course, summer school registration will be held April 13th through May 9th. Payment will be accepted in the bookstore. However, students should stop by the Guidance Office first to see their counselor for a referral. If the parent/guardian completes the registration, please follow the same procedure. The counselor will ensure that the student is registering for a class which is needed for graduation.  For courses offered, dates, and times, click here.

Also, please ensure that you are taking advantage of Power Parent, so you know exactly where your child is and what he/she needs to do to prepare for a successful second semester.  

PSAE testing will take place on April 23 and 24, 2014, for juniors. Junior students will take the ACT on day one and Work Keys on day two. The ACT results may be used for college entrance. This ACT score will be accepted for NCAA Clearinghouse, if students are interested in playing athletics at a Division I or Division II college or university. Work Keys are state developed tests which correlate with employability skills. Illinois State Law requires that participation in this testing process be documented on the student’s diploma. For ACT help and study guide information, click here.

Freshman and sophomore students will also participate in testing on April 23rd and 24th. They will take  the PLAN and a retired ACT, respectively, with the second day tests being Work Keys as well.

If a senior is still in need of taking the ACT, there is only one national test date remaining for this semester.  The final test will be administered on June 14, 2014.  Parents may log on to to register for the test. Please know that there are new photo submissions required. For ACT help and study guide information, click here.

Advance Placement Testing is scheduled for the second and third weeks of May, 2014. TF North offers online practice for the AP exams via Gale Testing and Education Reference Center.  For login and password information, please cotact Ms. Wall at (708) 585-1029 or through email at

Graduation is right around the corner. Seniors will take exams on May 13 and May 14, 2014. Parents and students should check with Mr. Conley in the bookstore to ensure that no monies are owed.

If a student has not been a Meteor for all four years, please check with your counselor to ensure that we have received your official transcript from your previous school. By now, students planning to participate in the graduation ceremony (Thursday, May 22nd, at 6:00 PM) should have ordered a cap and gown from our Herff-Jones representative, Jeff Puluch 708-606-4326. This year, there will be NO mandatory senior parent meeting.

Our Parent Advisory Board meets every third Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM.  If you are interested in meeting with a group of parents and school administration to discuss topics pertaining to your child and other school and community events, this is the meeting for you.  Feel free to contact one of our liaisons Tanya Reed and Socorro Evans at 708-585-7027 during school hours for any additional information on how you can be a part of the process of educational excellence at T.F. North High School.  Remember your child needs your continued support to fulfill their mission of being a continuous learner.

Go Meteors!

Dr. Dwayne E. Evans, Principal
