October 2019


Dear T.F. North Community,

The school year is off to a great start, and I’d like to share a few updates and important dates.  First and foremost, I want to thank all parents for partnering with us as we prepare our children for life after high school. 

The first quarter will be coming to a close soon (October 18th), so please continue to use Tyler to track the grades of your child.  If you have questions regarding your child, please do not hesitate to contact their teacher, guidance counselor, or an administrator

We will have our fall Parent Teacher Conference on Thursday, October 10th. It is an open house format where you can meet with your child’s teachers from 2:00 to 4:30 PM or 6:00 to 8:00 PM. This is a great chance to get to know the teachers and have a personal conversation regarding your child’s progress.

Also, please make sure to join us for our homecoming festivities during the first week of October with the parade on October 3rd, football game on October 4th, and the school dance on October 5th.  GO METEORS!!
