ROTARY/LEAF-FUNDED ROLL & READ BUS

ROLL & READ BUS DRIVES UP SUMMER READERSHIP

When the colorful Roll & Read Project bus pulled up to elementary schools, Boys and Girls Clubs and neighborhoods this summer, children eager to access the mobile library’s generous array of books came running and climbed aboard.


LEAF ADOPT A CLASSROOM PROJECT

LEAF announces the official kickoff of the Adopt a Classroom Project for the fall of 2015. The District 742 Local Education & Activities Foundation’s goal is to connect businesses, individuals and groups to specific classrooms to help provide needed supplies that the District is unable to fund. Supporters can “adopt” a classroom (Early Education, Elementary, Junior High or Senior High) by making a tax-deductable $250 contribution for the needed classroom supplies.


Tech Tiger Scramble Focuses on Students

With almost 100 years of history at St. Cloud Tech High School, it is not surprising that alumni, teachers, coaches and community members come out each summer to support Tech students during the Tiger Scramble Golf Tournament.  Celebrating the 7th annual fundraiser on Friday, July 31st, the Tiger Scramble,  sponsored by Schluchter Financial Advisors, welcomes 150 participants who come together to show their commitment to Tech Athletics and the importance of student involvement.  This event is held at the Wapicada Golf Club and the focus for the day is very simple: support Tech students and have fun while doing it.
