It's A Great Time To Be A Cardinal!

I'm very excited to serve the Staples-Motley School District.  ISD#2170 has a tradition of excellence and boasts strong academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular education.  The teachers, staff, and administration work hard to provide high quality educational opportunities for all students within a supportive environment.  Working together, we will build upon the strengths of the district and continually improve the ability of the district to educate all students and prepare them for the 21st Century work force.

In addition to a solid academic curriculum, students can pursue their individual interests through a complement  of elective courses as well as participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities.  Staples-Motley School District also provides pre-school opportunities through our Community Education program.

In order for all children to be successful in attaining their potential, we believe a strong relationship needs to be fostered between the home and school.  We encourage all parents and community members to take an active role in the school.  We hope this website will be an effective tool in fostering a strong parental/community relationship with the school.

I welcome your comments, concerns and suggestions.  I look forward to working with you and serving the Staples and Motley communities.   My contact information is:   Office - 218-894-5400;  mobile 763-360-2539
