    PARENTS OF CURRENT 6TH GRADE STUDENTS

    Mark your calendars now for the 7th grade trip to the Laurentian Environmental Center next fall.  For many students in the Mounds View School District, their trip to the Laurentian Environmental Center (LEC) was a highlight of their middle school years.  We are very excited to announce an opportunity for our current 6th grade students to participate in the Laurentian trip in the fall of 2016.  Students will spend 3 days and 2 nights of educational and team-building activities in the north woods of Minnesota.
