Discover something beautiful


Welcome!

Message from the Coordinator

It’s that time of the year when you’re busy making choices...about what to serve, what to buy for that special someone, what
to wear to the holiday party and whether or not you actually have time for yourself. Amongst the hustle and bustle of hosting,
planning, purchasing and wrapping, it’s important to remember YOU!

This season is the perfect time to try those ideas that you’ve been pinning to your Pinterest board. We know just how busy
your life can be. When you register for a class through Osseo Area Schools Community Education, you’ll meet people just
like you...choice-makers, busy-bodies, wanna-be-artists, musicians-in-the-making and more. You see, our classes are meant to
inspire you, teach you, connect you and relax you.

We’re proud to be a part of this extraordinary community. Approximately 68,000 residents, including you, have received this
catalog. We have over 50 new classes for adults and youth this season! Shimmy and shake while you learn to belly dance,
explore an exotic new language, hunker down with homemade soups, power up in our Power Tools for Women class and so
much more.

You have consistently shared that one of the top reasons you enroll in our classes is because we’re unique. You have also told
us that spending time with friends, while learning a new hobby or skill, is important to you. We’d be surprised if you can’t
find something that peaks your interest. Our purpose is to create opportunities that positively impact our whole community
through innovative and responsive programs and services. Sign up for a class, invite a friend, try something new and discover
something beautiful.

If you haven’t met our team of dynamic staff, please stop by our district office, call or email us. We look forward to serving
you. Because you’re so important to us, our promise to you remains simple. If you’re not satisfied for any reason, please don’t
hesitate to call and we’ll do our best to make things right. As always, if you have class suggestions we welcome your feedback.

Here’s to those happy holidays, new resolutions, cozy sweaters, crackling fires and the company of good friends and family.
We wish you another amazing year ahead!

Wastebasket Revue 2018

51 Years of Entertainment!

In the fall of 1967, a group of Osseo teachers began working on the creation of a “variety show” to accomplish two goals:
1. Raise money for scholarships for Osseo Senior High students going on to college; and
2. Provide an opportunity for teachers new to both District 279 and to teaching, to meet their peers outside of
the buildings in which they worked.

Today, nearly 300 dedicated and talented employees of ISD 279 including teachers, custodians, principals, cooks,
secretaries, educational support professionals, and administrators will entertain you in the show of the year! Numerous
community members give their time to the Wastebasket Revue organization as well. Today, the purpose of the show
remains the same; to raise money for scholarships awarded to graduating seniors of Maple Grove, Osseo and Park Center
Senior High Schools for post-secondary education. Over $1,180,000 has been raised for 820 scholarships since 1967!
Tickets go on sale starting in early March.
