Begin on the path to endless possibilities.

Your child is about to embark on an exciting adventure to build the foundation of their education. They will be immersed in new friends, experiences and ideas. As you begin to navigate this journey, you will see the passion our staff has about children and learning. Your children are welcomed to the classroom every day with that positive spirit. 

We know that children learn best when home, school and community work together harmoniously. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Sauk Rapids-Rice School District. Congratulations to you and your child for taking the first step into a great future.
