School resumes on Wednesday, Jan. 2 for students and staff in Sleepy Eye. With snow and cold this year, some of those outdoor activities could be planned like skiing, snowmobiling and ice skating unless the temperatures get too low. There were a few days to try out those new toys the little ones received.
It is time to look ahead at the January events that will be offered by Sleepy Eye Community Education. Each Friday, volunteers are available to work with those wanting to knit or crochet. The group meets in Room 109 from 3:30-5 p.m. All skill levels are invited to participate.

Since staff is part-time, they may not always be in the building. You can call and leave a message on voicemail, 507-794-7873, and we will get back to you with more information. Another option is to e-mail staff with questions and to sign-up. Addresses are on the school website.
