  • Educate. Innovate. Succeed.

    Dassel Elementary is a place where we ask students and staff members to “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” Teachers and support staff engage, nurture, and support students in a way that helps each individual child see that they have amazing potential if they just try. Let’s see what we can do together to encourage the ‘CAN DO’ attitude in all of us.

    Here are some 'featured' programs provided for students at Dassel Elementary that help students MAKE THEIR MARK:

    • CARE Groups
    • Character Education/ Olweus anti-bullying curriculum
    • Jumpstart and STARS Programming
    • WONDERS Reading
    • Science Exploration
    • Social Studies Adventures
    • Creative Art Discovery
    • Numerous Volunteer Coordinated Programs
    • Hands-on Learning
    • Enrichment Activities
    • Technology/Media Center/Computer Lab
    • Quality Music Classes
    • Active and Healthy Phy Ed. Offerings
    • Odyssey/Title I Programming
    • Reading Corps
    • MCA Test Prep Opportunities
    • Summer School Opportunities

    Providing quality programming is accomplished with dedication from an amazing staff and all others who take on the challenge.

Fundraising Opportunities

Please help us raise additional funds for our schools! Below is a list of ways you can help by saving or recycling items you either purchased or no longer use.

Name Description
Pop Can Tops/Tabs Yes, we still collect the tabs from the top of cans! We have a wonderful little collection “house” and the tabs are collected and turned into the local McDonalds for the Ronald McDonald House in the metro area. These can be turned in any time!
Box Tops Look for products with BOX TOPS for Education coupon. Each coupon is worth 10 cents! Please check the expiration date and trim the coupon. Sometimes we will have a special event for the program. The students enjoy collecting for a special goal. Keep on clipping! See boxtops4education.com for online shopping, saving and clipping, too!
Food Club/Cash Wise Labels for learning is an easy rewards program. There is a separate printing attached to your receipt with the points for redemption. Please clip this, check the expiration date, and send into school with your student. (If you would like to collect for a while, count the points and then tally and send that to us--yea!) We need to send in the points in bundles of 2,500.
Shoparoo The theme for this fundraiser is: Shop, Snap, and Earn. This is a free app from the AppleApp Store or Google Play Store. Select Dassel or Cokato Elementary as your school choice, take a picture of your receipt --shop anywhere, buy anything. For more information, check out shoparoo.com
Empty Printer Cartridges/Cell Phones Over 25 million pounds of empty printer cartridges and cell phones are thrown in landfills each year. Send those old cell phones and empty laser, inkjet, fax and copier cartridges to school. You will help the environment too! *Dassel Elementary ONLY!*
