The 2018-2019 school year has begun and we are excited for an outstanding school year!

We are excited to welcome new staff to the Lake Superior School District. You will be introduced to the new Lake Superior School District teachers in this edition of the Good News.

The Lake Superior School District has offerings for our students and community members throughout the school year. We are happy to be able to continue our Reading Pals program at the Minnehaha Elementary. Please consider volunteering to read with a child in this outstanding intergenerational activity.  All of our schools continue to offer programming to assist our students. We have the Alternative Delivery Student Instruction System (ADSIS) and Title One to work on skills, primarily in reading and math. Targeted Services programs are after school for students to have fun with math and reading and keep the students connected with school. Credit recovery is also available for students, our counselors have information for credit recovery. Community Education offers enrichment courses for all ages throughout the school year in a variety of areas.

This year we have a new Elementary Science curriculum. The Elementary Science team researched multiple curriculums and found what they needed to upgrade our current teaching and meet the needs of our students. The Science teachers have been working over the summer writing curriculum and getting the curriculum organized and ready for implementation  for the school year.

Our facilities are looking great. Our summer staff did an outstanding job getting the buildings ready for the school year. We have done a lot of painting throughout our schools. Check out the improvements in  the Minnehaha flooring throughout the building.

We have a newly revitalized auditorium at William Kelley in Silver Bay. This project would not be possible without the great work from Katie Fritz and generous contributions from the community and WKS alumni along with many grants received. Please plan to attend an event at to see the renovations.

The district is looking for bus drivers. We need drivers for our extra-curricular events and substitutes for our daily bus routes. If you have an interest in becoming a school bus driver please contact the district office, 218-834-8201 x 8216.

The staff is excited and looking forward to an outstanding school year. We thank you for allowing us to work with a precious resource in our communities, the children. We encourage you all to come to the schools for concerts, athletic events, volunteering in classrooms and see what great things are taking place in the Lake Superior School District schools.
