Osseo Elementary - The Original

The District 279 School Board is considering the option of closing Osseo Elementary. We need your help! Residents of Osseo, business owners, friends, and family . . . do what you can. Attend an informational meeting Wednesday night at 7:00 at Osseo Elementary.

We must be positive and strong in our voice to the district. The school board members have a very tough job. Clear, concise facts are helpful. Two interesting facts regarding the city of Osseo are:
The school district properties in the city of Osseo encompass roughly 13% of Osseo's total land. This is the most in the district.

The city of Osseo is made up of 43% of non-owner occupied housing, which is the highest percentage in the district.

Closing the elementary school would have a detrimental effect on the city.

Thanks to all who attended our organizational meeting on Wednesday! We had a great turn out!

The first school board meeting is coming up Wednesday 2/6 at 8pm. It's at 11200 - 93rd Avenue North in Maple Grove MN 55369. PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! THE MORE THE MERRIER! It wouldn't be a bad idea for the speaker to ask all who are there to support OE to raise hands/stand up, etc.

Below is a list of those who volunteered to assist with the Community Comment that night:
Speaker: Jim Dooher (jdooher@hubbell.com)
Supporters: Pamela Royle, Holly Robinson, Rebecca Barger, Theresa Goodwin, Renee Miller, Bryan Sullivan, and Julie Audette

Those listed above, and anyone else interested, is to attend a PLANNING MEETING Tuesday night (2/5) at 7pm - the place was not listed, so how about the Caribou across Hwy 81 from downtown Osseo.

Remember - PARENTS HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!!!!!!
