State Rep. Brian Daniels visits Nerstrand School

Minnesota State Representative Brian Daniels was a guest at Nerstrand School on Friday, Feb. 20. Representative Daniels was given a tour of our school by two of our student ambassadors. The ambassadors described some of the many things that make Nerstrand school so unique, such as our multi-age classrooms, our K-5 family based homerooms, daily instruction in music and phy-ed for all students, and the many opportunities our students have to be involved in their school through student committee participation.

After the tour Representative Daniels met with Director, Lori Arndt and Business Manager, Keith Johnson to discuss small school revenue for charter schools, a legislative proposal which would positively impact Nerstrand School.
