Osseo Area Schools Community Education is in its fifth and final year of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant that provides free afterschool and summer programming at Brooklyn Junior High, North View Junior High, TreeHouse, and Zanewood Recreation Center.

The district intends to apply for another 21st Century Community Learning Center grant to continue offering afterschool programming for youth in our community at no cost to participants.

Watch this video to learn more about the grant and its benefits for students.

Since grant activities are focused on students who live in Brooklyn Park, grant staff are interested in learning about other activities Brooklyn Park families would like to see offered in their community. If you live in Brooklyn Park, please provide your feedback through this survey.

For additional information or questions, please contact Andrea Bernhardt at 763.391.7142.

Forty-three Osseo Area School students were recognized for their achievements at the Star Students Awards presented by the Business Education Partnership Committee of the North Hennepin Area Chamber of Commerce earlier this month. This committee helps to build a connection between education and local businesses. Students were nominated and selected based on their applications and letters of recommendations.
