Hello T.F. South Family,

Welcome back to 2nd semester, everyone.  Our students were ready to begin on day one, where we achieved 94% attendance.  We thank them for their patience as a few schedule changes were necessary to balance out our class sizes.

Thanks for your attention to a few important announcements:

First, please take a few moments to complete the Illinois 5 Essentials Survey here:
External Linkhttps://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois
In order for the state to generate a report to assist us in planning our school improvement stategies, we must reach a minimum 20% parent response rate. As of this morning, we are at just 15%.

Second, please SAVE THE DATE: February 4, 2017, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
T.F. South will be hosting a parent workshop for all District 215 moms, dads, and guardians that includes a continental breakfast, keynote speaker, vendors, breakout sessions, and lunch, all at NO COST. Childcare will also be provided for children who are potty-trained through 12 years old. More information will be coming soon about this engaging workshop planned for parents, by parents.

Third, senior student account statements were mailed home in December.  All fines and fees must be paid in order for a student to purchase Prom tickets. The deadline for accounts to be paid in time for Prom is Thursday, May 4.  In order to participate in Graduation, student fees must be paid by Tuesday, May 16.  For any questions about student accounts, you may contact our Bookstore Manager, Ms. McAfee at 708-585-2085.  If free or reduced status was not granted by the State of Illinois prior to November 30, we are unable to waive any current school year fees, nor can accrued fines and fees from previous years be waived.  Please plan accordingly to make sure your student’s account is in order as soon as possible.

Finally, I want to thank for all you do to support your student and our school. Together, we can make a difference.

Sincerely,

Jake Gourley
Principal
