Morning Supervision Begins at 7:15

As the weather gets colder, please remember that morning supervision at MN does not begin until 7:15.  Students will have no supervision and will have to wait outside until the doors open if they arrive earlier.  Please plan your morning accordingly.

Runners Show Well at State

Middle North’s own Lauren and Payton did a great job at the state meet Saturday!  It was amazing to see the fastest runners in Illinois racing together with Payton and Lauren in the front group.  On top of that, Payton finished in 18th place with a time of 12:14 (over 2 miles).  Put simply, that is  an awesome achievement.  Here are a few pics of the day.

Breakfast Available to All Students

Eating breakfast is important for everyone, but is especially so for children. Our food service Sodexo, provides a daily breakfast with a variety of foods including fresh fruit, low fat milk, 100% juice and a well balanced nutritious list of healthy grain items.
There is always a hot item and 2 to go breakfast choice options. Students are allowed to come  to the cafeteria before school and enjoy a healthy breakfast. It is clear that there are many benefits to a healthy breakfast, not only does it give you energy to start a new day, but it can make a positive difference in a child’s performance and enhance their learning.
