Community Education Staff

Community Education provides a wide assortment of programming to inspire and engage our community. Connecting with others is a great way for sharing our insights, our experiences and building community. Whether you or your child are creating art, participating in a parent/child play time, signing up for an after-school youth experience or sharpening a work- related skill, there are many powerful learning opportunities to soak up knowledge and connect with others in our community.

ADAM HOLM, Executive Director 320-370-8225 • adam.holm@isd742.org

Every time we prepare another edition, I am reminded of all the exciting things to do in our community and the great people we have yet to meet. The classes and activities have been carefully selected by our District 742 staff of community educators to bring new opportunities and connections to the St. Cloud community we serve. Make time this winter to participate, make new friends and contribute back to our community.

JEAN BORGMANN, Administrative Assistant 320-370-8201 • jean.borgmann@isd742.org

Dear St. Cloud Area Schools Community: It is an exciting time in District 742! After celebrating this fall the opening of our new Quarryview facility and the remodeled District Administration Office in Waite Park, we now eagerly await the Grand Opening of Tech High School on the south side of St. Cloud in the fall of 2019. Outside and interior walls, windows, roofing, fields and parking lots visibly create a concrete image of the school and campus to come. As we plan for the future success of all our students, programming is being studied for both high schools. The high school programming committee has been studying and designing course offerings that meet the needs of our students, our local employers and an everchanging, global world. It is also the time of year for Kindergarten enrollment, which in St. Cloud Area School District includes our Chinese and Spanish Immersion programs. What a great opportunity to visit our schools and meet principals and teachers to learn more about the innovative classroom experiences that await your child! In addition to evening open houses, all District 742 elementary schools will host a Kindergarten Open House on January 25th from 8 -10 a.m. Go to our website at isd742.org/enrollment for more information. You may also contact your school principal for a private tour. Finally, winter is often the time of year when friends and family gather to share memories and celebrate. Whatever your tradition, I wish you peace and joy in the New Year. Willie Jett Superintendent, St. Cloud Area Schools
