Located just minutes from Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha and Minnehaha Creek, Northrop Urban Environmental Learning Center offers excellent opportunities to explore the natural world in the city.  We provide extensive hands-on and outdoor learning to trigger your child's sense of wonder, and enable them to make discoveries on their own.  We believe this personal empowerment is the bridge to a life-long thirst for knowledge. Come see for yourself!

Please be a part of a surprise for Northrop Teachers and Staff members!

Please use your phone or a technological device to record and send me a short video (10-15 seconds) about why you love Northrop Community School.  The videos will be compiled into one bigger video that will be shown to teachers and staff members throughout the school year.  The final video may also be shown in the lobby on Open House night and Conferences during the school year.  

I welcome all parents and students (past and present) to contribute a video!  You may send videos to akettunenjahnke@gmail.com (the files are too big for my MPS account).  Thank you for your help!  And remember, don't tell the the teachers and staff  :-)  We want it to be a surprise!  Thank you, Miss Amy
