Welcome to Middlefork School, Grades K-3

Dr. Mary Frances Greene, Principal
Phone: 847.881.9500 Ext. 505
It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as the principal of Middlefork School in Sunset Ridge District 29. When Middlefork School first opened its doors in 1959, Northfield was a growing community, and according to Mary Osborne, Middlefork's first principal, the superintendent wanted to give the little kids a place all their own. More than fifty years later, Middlefork's kindergarten through third grade students continue to thrive in a safe, nurturing, child-centered environment created by a highly skilled and dedicated staff. Our Middlefork mission statement speaks to our commitment to the youngest students of the District 29 community and to our belief that only through a team effort will we maximize the early educational experience of each child.
Middlefork Mission:
To cultivate a learning community that engages the hearts and minds of young students, one child at a time, 
and that places the child at the center of all decision-making.
As their children's first and most important teachers, we welcome parents as partners in our mission. Parent involvement in school and classroom programs is encouraged and appreciated. From reading with first graders, to gardening with second and third graders, or serving lunch in the cafeteria, the opportunities to share in the Middlefork school day are numerous.

Middlefork School is truly a wonderful place to teach and to learn. We have high expectations for our students and our staff and take great pride in their achievements. If you should have any further questions about our school or programs, I can be contacted at greenem@sunsetridge29.org.
