Principal's Message

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s): 

Our first quarter has come and gone and your students accomplished great feats in that time.

  • The Editor-in-Chief of the Chronoscope yearbook, senior Rhonda Watkins, took 3rd place in the yearbook copy-writing category at the SSC Journalism Conference Competition.  Rhonda is the first Meteor to win a medal in any event since TF North joined the SSC!

  • The TF United Varsity Boys Soccer team were SSC Conference Champs!

  • The TF United Frosh/Soph Boys Soccer Team were SSC Conference Champs for the 3rd straight year!

  • Our Girls Tennis #1 Doubles team of Stephanie Samaniego and Kayla Vaughn were State Finalists!

  • Our Boys and Girls Cross Country teams were IHSA Sectional Qualifiers!

  • The Varsity Girls Volleyball team received the IHSA Sportsmanship Award!

We are very proud of all of the above endeavors as well as those kind acts and other outstanding endeavors that go unseen.

Report cards were sent out to the email addresses provided during registration. Please call (708) 585-1008 if you have not received an email so that your email address can be updated.

As I always state, we cannot ensure the success of your student without your assistance. Students with parents who are involved in their school tend to have fewer behavioral problems and better academic performance, and are more likely to complete high school than students whose parents are not involved in their school. Consider joining one or more of the following parent groups:

  • Parent Advisory Board – Meetings take place in the TF North LRC (library) on the third Thursday of every month from 5:30 to 6:30.

  • Athletics Booster Club – Meetings will take place once a month. Please contact Mrs. Lake for upcoming meeting details.

  • Band Boosters Please contact Mr. Malik for meeting information.

Gearing up for 2nd quarter, please remind your student that they have an abundance of resources to assist them. Please see the Calendar of Events to the right to see which days and times they are offered and strongly encourage your students to utilize these resources. They include:

  • Homework Center
  • ASAP
  • Freshmen House Homework Recovery
  • Athletic Study Hall
  • NHS Tutoring
  • AP/Honors Study Hall

We also have a Freshman Mentoring Program that is starting up. If you are a freshman parent and have questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Passarelli.

Finally, the LRC Main computer lab stays open for students every day after school until 4:15 PM. Whether your student needs help conducting research or finding a good book, the Librarian is there to help and answer questions.

My very best as we move towards the end of Semester One.
