We would like to express our appreciation to the United Way of Nobles County board and United Way contributors for their support. The Community Connector program received financial support from United Way of Nobles County again this year.
If you are interested in PASS classes to help you better understand the school system, contact a Adry Stafford for details or to enroll. Childcare and transportation are provided, as needed. PASS classes have been canceled due to COVID 19. They will be offered again in the future. In the meantime, liaisons are working with families one-on-one.
