Argosy University, Twin Cities School Supply Drive

(Minnesota, August 2015)  For parents and kids in K-12, fall is “back to school” time.  It can be a struggle to find ways to pay for supplies for children to be successful in school.  For the second year in a row, individuals who apply to Argosy University, Twin Cities this fall have the opportunity to donate school supplies for elementary and middle school students, in lieu of paying an application fee.  On July 30, Dana Brown, Community Education Coordinator for District 196, picked up 133 school supply packs that will be distributed to students in need at 4 secondary schools (Black Hawk Middle School, Dakota Hills Middle School, Scott Highland Middle School, and Valley Middle School of STEM) and 3 elementary schools (Diamond Path Elementary School of International Studies, Oak Ridge Elementary School, and Thomas Lake Elementary School).  The school supply packs are distributed by School Counselors and Social Workers to students identified as in need of assistance. 

Carolyn Larson, Admissions Representative and Coordinator for the project for the campus,  said the district was “thrilled with the donation”.   Carolyn added “It’s so great to be part of a project that helps kids start school off on the right foot.”   Donations at the campus will continue until September 4.   District 196 encompasses 18 elementary schools, 6 middle schools and 4 high schools and serves students from 9 communities and an 110 square mile swath of the South East metro area.  The School Supply project has continued to expand as the need for supplies has continued to grow.”
