Marcellus Dees, a student in the Burnsville High School Class of 2018, was recently honored for completing a six-month Rites of Passage Program (ROP) sponsored annually by the Minneapolis Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
Homecoming pep fests are memorable experiences for most high school students, but the pep fest at Burnsville High School last fall may prove life changing for senior Markell Sutton. His musical performance led a staff member to introduce him to THE GARAGE, a music venue and recording studio that partners with the city of Burnsville and Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 to provide learning opportunities for students.
In Markell’s case, what the partnership is providing is an opportunity for self-expression and the chance to pursue his passion and hopeful career pathway.
Dakota Electric Association recently donated $10,000 to support college and career pathways programming in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. The donation will help the district continue its work to provide classes and other opportunities that help students find their passions and prepare for success after graduation.
“I would like to thank you on behalf of the school district for your gracious contributions to education,” said Dr. Kathy Funston, director of strategic partnerships and pathways for District 191.
We've finished one school year after implementing Vision One91. It's a great time to look at what's been accomplished and what we're doing next to help ensure all of our student are Future Ready!
