Registration is now open and a calendar of events is available for the EDGE summer program.
The EDGE is a comprehensive youth program for students entering grades 6-9, run by District 191 Community Education in partnership with Farmington, Lakeville and New Prague schools. The focus is to give kids experiences that will help develop skills such as independence, responsibility, and accountability, along with improving interpersonal communication. These fun and positive experiences will be provided in both recreational and educational environments throughout the community, allowing kids to feel successful and receive recognition.
The EDGE runs June 10-Aug. 28 and participants take daily field trips to places including Valleyfair, Taylors Falls, Way Cool Cooking School, the Science Museum and many more. Breakfast, a bag lunch, snack and all fees (except Valleyfair admission) are included in the $33 daily fee. Transportation is available to and from several area schools in Burnsville, Farmington, Lakeville and New Prague/Elko/New Market.
An open house for families to learn more about the EDGE will be held on May 12 from 5-6 p.m. at Harriet Bishop Elementary, 14400 O'Connell Rd., Savage.
