MNCS Nuts + Bolts has rented the St. Peter outdoor pool for MNCS students, staff, and families to enjoy on Friday, July 29 from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.  We know that having students from so many different communities means that kids don't always get a chance to see one another during the summer, so we try to have a fun activity for people in the summer. 

What: MNCS Summer Pool Reunion 

Where: Roy T. Lindenberg Memorial Outdoor Pool in St. Peter (300 North 4th Street)

When: Friday, July 29th  7 p.m. - 9 p.m. 

All MNCS students, staff, and family members can come to enjoy the pool! Bring a treat to share. Your favorite inflatable toys are welcome, too! 

MNCS Nuts and Bolts is back in action!!! 

We are going to do the Flower Power Fundraiser again!

Are you dreaming of warmer weather, springtime, and sunshine? So are we! Planning a garden is a really great way to pass the time when it's cold out. Who doesn't love to look at photos from a garden catalog and dream of how great everything will smell and taste when it's in your very own yard? 

This year, Nuts + Bolts is hosting an online fundraiser with Flower Power Fundraising. All you have to do is dream about your garden and then order some things from the online catalog.  Here's the link:

It's as easy as that! All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit MNCS. You can help us grow by planting some things that grow --- pretty great, right?

Thank you for supporting the students and staff at Minnesota New Country School! 

Here's to dirt under our fingernails and grass stains on our knees!!

The Lions Club has a recycle collection box outside of MNCS. They are collecting plastic shopping bags (Target, Walmart etc.), there is a list on the outside of the white box. 

They have 5 months to reach their goal, once reached they will get a “By the Yard” bench to be able to place it in town.
