Downers Grove North Parents' Club - Mission Statement
The DGN Parents' Club partners with faculty and staff at the high school to enhance the overall experience and well-being of our students during their time at DGN. We are a committed group of parent volunteers who strive to bring relevant resources, both financial and educational, to the DGN community. We provide a network for parents to meet together and share information in order to navigate the high school years. Our club directly supports the DGN community via student scholarships and grants, special events, and monthly speakers, all in an effort to provide a more connected high school experience.
Principal Schwarze is Retiring
After 33 years in education, 14 years in District 99 and 5 years leading DGN, Principal Janice Schwarze will be retiring at the end of this year. Mrs. Schwarze has consistently been a student-centered leader, showing her commitment to the entire DGN community by communicating regularly, attending a multitude of student events and developing lasting relationships with staff, students and families. During the 5 years of her tenure, our DGN community has faced many challenges that Mrs. Schwarze has navigated with strength, transparency and compassion. Her excellent leadership has provided stability to our community.
The Parents' Club has a few surprises planned to thank Janice for her service. See the Parents' Club email, or shoot us an email and we can forward it to you - you can reach us at

Teacher Appreciation Plans
It's been a long school year and we'd like to spread some cheer to the DGN teachers and staff as we enter the home stretch. We will be raffling off gift cards every Friday throughout the end of the school year, as well as putting together gift baskets with tasty treats for each department. We need your help to make this possible! Please see the list below of items we are collecting. THANK YOU for your support!
