I am extremely grateful you have chosen Sebeka Public School for your educational experience. Sebeka has been my home for the past 27 years as the band director and I am thrilled to continue my career in Sebeka as the superintendent!.

First and foremost, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to our dedicated students, talented teachers, and supportive families. Your unwavering commitment to education is truly commendable, and it serves as a testament to the strong sense of community that we have fostered within our schools.

Throughout the year, we strive to provide an exceptional learning experience for every student. Our educators implement innovative teaching methods and utilize cutting-edge technology to enhance the educational journey. We firmly believe in equipping our students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.

I am delighted to share that in 2023 our district received a designation of “School of Excellence” from the Minnesota Elementary Principals Association. Our students have excelled in various academic and extracurricular activities, showcasing their talents and passion. Their achievements reflect the outstanding efforts of our teachers, staff, and administrators who have nurtured their growth and provided them with invaluable opportunities.
