Extension Leadership Visits Bruce Vento Elementary School

By Cari Michaels and Judy Myers, Extension Educators — Children, Youth & Family Consortium
On June 7, students and teachers at Bruce Vento Elementary School in Saint Paul were happy to greet visitors from University of Minnesota Extension. Dean Beverly Durgan, Senior Associate Dean Brent Hales, Family Development (FD) Associate Dean Karen Shirer, and Director of Urban Family Development and Evaluation and the Children, Youth & Family Consortium (CYFC) Mary Marczak, were eager to learn about the progress of this partnership over the past two years.

Partnership members, including Principal Scott Masini, CYFC’s Judy Myers, and Ed Frickson of Family Innovations, shared stories and significant outcomes of the project. Visitors toured the school, including the newly redesigned calming room, several active classrooms, and outdoor schoolyard gardens.
