Wondering which activities require caregiver registration? 

On page 13 in the catalog you'll find the 'Caregiver Events' section. That lists all activities for caregivers. Note that only one caregiver per group needs to register for a dance.

Have questions? Contact us at projectexplore@district196.org or call us at 651-423-7931 with any questions.

For assistance with a registration call 651-423-7920.

Bingo Night!

Our trip to Austin, Minnesota was SPAMTASTIC!  We learned a lot at the SPAM Museum, sampled varieties of SPAM not available in the United States, made a colorful craft and visited the Hormel Nature Center.
