Principal's Message

Mr. Brian Rucinski


TF North Families,

This is the time of year to be thankful and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to work with the students, families, and staff here at North. Everyday that I am here, I am motivated and inspired by what I see, whether it is a student going above and beyond in the classroom, a staff member taking the time to help motivate a student, or a parent finding a unique way to support our school.

I am thankful that we continue to strive for an open and positive school climate as we continue to grow stronger by our diversity. While this semester has been marred by tragedy, I am strengthened by the way our community comes together in a time of need.

As the holidays approach, please take time to spend with friends and family and celebrate the wonderful people we have in our lives. As I said, I am extremely thankful to get to work with each of you, and I truly appreciate your continued support.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any concerns regarding your child.  Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Go Meteors!
