If I were to envision the ideal school community, one where learning and character education are at the forefront of everything happening within the school walls, I would expect to see certain shared qualities of all those working in that district. Through every interaction with students, colleagues, parents, and other community members, I would see staff who are empathic, who clearly communicate, who are present and engaged, and who look to serve others. Above all, purposeful relationship building would be priority number one.

St. Croix Central has had an incredible fall to get our 2017-2018 school year started. Our varsity athletics performed at phenomenal levels with much success, and we witnessed extremely positive performances and outcomes athletically at the middle school as well.

While we have offered ebooks and digital audiobooks to the community with OverDrive for years, we know that many people are still surprised to learn their library card gives them access to over 71,000 free digital titles.
Books the Elf is staying very busy at the library. He's been sighted all dressed up in his tux ready for a night out on the town ... he might have met up with one of his lady friends from your home! He was busy with his advice booth (lots of people needing advice this holiday season). Books was excited to ride in his Lego sleigh pulled by his reindeer in the fresh snow. He has encouraged people to do three good deeds a day; have you thought about how your kind deeds can change the world, one person at a time?
St. Croix Central made the move to the Middle Border Conference two years ago with many questions. Were we ready to handle the elevated competition? Were we big enough, fast enough, and strong enough? A "big school" mentality, systemic approach to strength and conditioning, and a unified athletics department have all contributed to the success of our athletics this fall. From athletes, to coaches, to parents and community, we have all had a hand in the growth and development of our athletic culture.
