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.
Young Hearts for Life - YHFL - Important Registration Info!
