Stay In-Touch with Sauk Centre Community Ed! (Sept. 2020)

Greetings Sauk Centre School-Community and Stakeholders!

We hope that you enjoyed your Summer activities and are looking forward to the Fall. We aware that this has been a crazy year and we want to let you know that we have not forgotten about you. We are trying to reach out to our stakeholders and public in as many avenues as possible and this seems to get high amount of traffic. You are receiving this because you registered for a class via our online registration program or have reached out to us via email. Please let us know if you do not want to receive future electronic newsletters.

We have scheduled classes and activities that are online and in person. We are optimistic that we can turn the dial and get some small in person classes and activities back in our buildings in the month of October and thereafter. This is an unprecedented time and we appreciate your patience and support as we navigate together.

We are excited to officially begin our Strategic Planning Process for the Sauk Centre School District. Please help us by completing a very short survey. More information is further down in the newsletter.

Like anything new, there may be some wrinkles that we may have to iron out along the way. As always, we are looking for input and recommendations to help build, grow and enhance your programs. "It does not matter where we are, it matters where we want to go from here."

Thank you and it is a great time to be a Mainstreeter!
