<h3 class="breakHead">Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The 2019-2020 school year did not end as expected, however it will certainly be memorable. Although this may be the 52nd annual Commencement Ceremony for Glenbard North High School, this is also the first ever "Virtual Commencement Ceremony" in the history of District 87. Congratulations to the Class of 2020 - We Are Proud of You!</h3>
