Welcome to the Pelican Rapids Public Schools!
There are many characteristics and features highlighting the uniqueness of the Pelican Rapids Schools. We offer opportunities to learn about and experience diverse cultures not often associated with small towns. As a Leader in Me school, our students learn and practice Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits® as they develop their leadership skills to meet the challenges of today and those they’ll face tomorrow.
A rich tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts is woven into the culture of our schools. Our state-of-the-art facilities include the Al Siegle Activities Center which has a raised walking track that can be used during breaks in action while attending indoor games and events. The Fine Arts Auditorium is an amazing facility with world-class acoustics that enhance school and community theatrical productions, musical concerts and other performances.
This school year will be unlike any other that we have experienced in our lives. We are committed to safe and healthy learning, staying connected to our students and partnering with families to navigate the unchartered waters that we are experiencing in our world at this time.
In addition, we will focus on priorities that have been set by the Pelican Rapids School Board and Administration including the following:
• Community Engagement
• Educating the Whole Child
• Increasing Student Achievement
• Maintaining Sound and Transparent Financial Practices
Our goal is to provide our students with in school learning as much as possible. We are working hard to provide a positive and safe learning environment for all students and staff. We ask that our students, parents/guardians and community members join us in making choices that lower the risk of COVID-19 spreading in our community so we can keep our students in school.
Together we can do this! Unity is our strength!
