Did you know that in Minnesota 1 in 3 third graders can't read at grade level? Or that less than 60% of our eighth graders are proficient in math? Together we can do more than change those statistics—we can change the future.


A Successful Learning Renaissance for 2018

LR 2018 001

The 2018 Learning Renaissance was a great success!  Thank you to all who participated and contributed.

The Learning Renaissance is a night of food, wine and good conversation held annually at the Cafe Renaissance in Waite Park.  In addition to providing a truly remarkable community gathering, the evening raised almost $40,000 for academic programs in District 742. If you missed this great event, be sure to join us next year!

Thanks again to all who participated.

STC-B2B meal-packing event

eaf mfth 1018 10x8

A LEAF team participated in the October 20th, 2018 "MEALS FROM THE HEART" meal packing event.

The event hosted 14 teams and nearly 150 people who packed just under 30,000 (28, 968 to be exact) meals for food shelves in Minnesota! It’s amazing what a group of committed folks can do in just an hour. Thanks to the LEAF team and all others for stepping up. The LEAF team packed 1,812 meals. Hopefully, this can continue to be a successful annual fall event. Dates for next year are being planned!
