Linda Pacha, founder of Nick’s Network of Hope and author of Saving Ourselves from Suicide—Before and After, was the featured speaker for a Suicide Prevention Webinar for the parents and administration of Thornton Fractional High School, District 215 on November 5, 2020.

Linda shared her son’s story and what she has learned from his life and death. She discussed the common risk factors and warning signs for suicide and even shared real-life examples that she recognized through hindsight.  Parents and participants found the presentation engaging and informative.

If you were unable to attend the live event, we are pleased that Nick’s Network of Hope has given us permission to share the recorded presentation with our community members.


We would like to welcome you to the parents section of Thornton Fractional North's website. This page is sponsored by TF North's Parent Advisory Board. The PAB's primary focus is to encourage communication, decision making, and partnering among the school, parents, and the Calumet City community.

Our goal with this website is two-fold:

  • To provide easy to navigate access to information and services important to parents.
  • To provide information to the District 215 community on issues such as the importance of parent/guardian involvement in their child's education and school. We hope you find our website easy to navigate and that it provides useful information.

If you have any suggestions for improvements, please don't hesitate to send us a note with your ideas! This site has been designed by parents for parents, and we would be delighted for more ideas! We would also like to invite you to become a member of TF North's Parent Advisory Board and the TFN Booster Club!

Also, School Board meetings are open to the public! They are scheduled for the 4th Tuesday of every month (scheduling changes will be announced at the previous month's School Board meeting as needed) and are held in the TF Center for Academics and Technology on Wentworth Avenue in Calumet City.

Important information and forms needed for various school-related purposes are listed to the right, along with a calendar of Parent Advisory Board events. For opportunities to volunteer, please visit the Volunteer Opportunities section of the Parent Resources website. For more information about the PAB, please phone (708) 585-7027 or email Socorro Evans @, or Tonya Reed @

We hope to share a wonderful school year with you and the TFN Community!
