8th Grade End of Year Party - Volunteers Needed!

Come join us to celebrate our fabulous 8th grade students by volunteering at the 8th grade end of year party at Wabun Park. This event will be held on Monday, June 3rd.

Ideally volunteers will be at Chippewa by 8:45 am to ride the bus with students and staff and return to Chippewa around 2:15 pm. If you can't make the whole day work please consider signing up for one of the other time slots. Our biggest volunteer needs are to help set up, serve and clean up after lunch.

More information about the 8th grade trip will come out soon but if you have questions now please reach out to your students dean.

Help us celebrate our class of 2023 and sign-up today! Thanks!

Join the local community as we support a global cause. Around the world, millions of people lack access to clean water. In fact, every 2 minutes, a child dies from water related diseases. As a community, we want to help change this!

Join us on Saturday, May 11 from 12-3 PM at the Mounds View High School Track for an afternoon of community bonding, prizes, local snacks, and a group walk!

Participants are challenged to carry water as they walk in order to simulate the water collection process that many people worldwide have to do through every day. Our walk will increase awareness about the Global Water Crisis, and raise money to build a water well for 763 young school children in Uganda who currently have no access to clean water. To learn more, donate, or register for the walk, visit Let’s come together, have fun, and make a difference! See you there!


Are you interested in learning more about the Global Water Crisis? Please come to an informational movie night in the Mounds View High School Auditorium at 6:30pm on May 7th.


Camp dates: June 10-14 / 10:00-12:00PM
