U.S. Sen. Al Franken recently congratulated Tyler Weaver, a Tartan High School graduate, on his appointment to West Point. Weaver will enter the U.S. Military Academy this summer.
Strolling the hallways between classes last week at Tartan High School, senior Jake Jackson blended in as he waded through a sea of students.
April is Financial Literacy Month, a time for people to learn about money - how to spend it, and how to save. In Minnesota, more than 200,000 people don't have access to a bank accounts. At metro high schools, that's starting to change.
In light of the painful economic lessons recently learned by governments, families and businesses, there is an even greater need to educate our youth about how to effectively manage money and prepare for their future.
Any time you change phone numbers or email addresses report the changes to your student’s school as soon as possible.
Congratulations 2013 Graduates
