Partnering for Education

Partnering for Education 2021 - A Virtual Gathering

Although we were not able to gather in-person for our annual Partnering for Education event this year, we were fortunate to hear from Mounds View district leadership staff and Irondale Freshman Roshan Nicholas Rochus John as part of the weeklong virtual celebration. We learned of our district’s commitment to ensuring an equitable learning experience for all students. While distance learning has proven to be tough, our students and staff have proven to be tougher. 

We deeply appreciate those that participated in our Partnering for Education Event. The $7,000 raised will help our district continue to meet the needs of our students - both in the classroom and at home - if distance learning continues for some of our families. 

Be assured, as the student’s learning environment continues to evolve, so will the foundation’s support.  The partnership with the district strengthens our resolve for helping our families as needs arise in the final few months of this school year.
