Summer Bridges Program

Summer Bridge is a pre-kindergarten program designed to ease your child’s transition to kindergarten. Summer Bridges is designed to support children who need a “practice time” before kindergarten. It will prepare your child by providing him or her with an experience very similar to kindergarten. Teachers will focus on developing beginning reading and writing skills, encouraging language development, participating in a group setting, following rules and routines and getting along with other children in a group.

Your child will attend classes at Albertville Primary School for three weeks, Monday through Thursday, on July 6-23, 2015. There is a small cost to participate.

If you wish your child to participate in this transition to kindergarten, please register soon as space is limited.

For more information regarding Summer Bridges, download the brochure below or call the Primary School office at 763-497-2688.

Registration can be completed online or by completing the form inside the brochure. For registration questions and cost information, download the brochure below or contact the Community Education office at 763-497-6550.

Why School Funding Matters To Your Child

Why School Funding Matters To Your Child Video

Our state's current policy for funding public education is grossly inequitable, irrational, and inexplicable.

  • STMA ranks last in general education revenue per pupil excluding the local referendum among 335 Minnesota public school districts.
  • STMA receives over $2,100 less in total revenue per pupil compared to the state average of $9,000.

Background Checks

Because of the importance of student safety, the STMA District requires all volunteers and chaperones to complete a background check. Only one background check is required for the entire time that your child is enrolled in ISD 885. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 497-2688.
