Social distancing/team building can be challenging for most groups, but not for this group! Nick strikes a pose, while students draw with a non-dominate hand. Sorry, no after pictures!

Let's give a warm welcome to Lisa, we are so excited to have her join our "E" Team! My name is Lisa Dorow and I'm the new Interventionist/Title I Advisor. I am excited to be part of the MNCS staff and getting to know the students, families, and community. I'm a graduate of Fairmont High School, South Dakota State University, and Bemidji State University. As you can tell, I love LEARNING!! I am relocating back to the St. Peter area with my husband, Jonathan, and our 4 children (Alex, Ian, Joe, & Dru). In our spare time, we love doing arts and crafts, exploring, kayaking, trying new foods, & learning new things. I look forward to supporting MNCS students and families throughout the year.
Look what Paula’s been up to this summer! Our summer has been busy but laid back. Lots of camping and fishing, our home away from home at the campground. Our new puppy has been a joy and keeps us busy, he’s a real cuddle bug. I’ve been helping my daughter with wedding things, praying for a beautiful day and that we don’t have to resort to Plan C. I also painted my sons new house for him, so proud of him. We have missed or family and friends but are staying safe by social distancing as much as possible.

Danielle’s Trip to the great North Shore! Hi everyone! My family and I recently spent some time on the North Shore. This is an almost sunset shot in Duluth. We stayed on the point- the other side of the Aerial Lift Bridge. It was neat because you had to be in tune to when ships are entering the harbor so that you don't get stuck on one side and all night long we heard clanging ship noises..it was a maritime experience and adventure. Another part I love is driving up the coast and stopping at small rocky beaches and rock hunting. The lake was so cold it turns your feet numb! I love the color, intensity and vastness of Lake Superior. I've been going there since I was a kid, and when I get that first view of it coming into town my heart goes crazy. It was challenging traveling during a pandemic, but we Minnesotans are lucky that we have some gorgeous outdoors! So get out there!
Nancy Pfarr, Business Manager at MNCS, has had a busy summer working. But got away for a much needed week long vacation with family to Sunset Bay Resort in Hackensack, MN. The weather was perfect, and the fishing was spectacular with big bass in abundance that were exciting to reel in. The sunsets were amazingly beautiful each night, and birthdays were celebrated with a crazy "wig party" and everyone had a great week at the lake.
