When the Oxbow Creek Elementary School kids and student council heard that Neil Eerdmans (a beloved 2nd grade teacher there) is racing in the 2007 Race Across America to raise money and awarness for Camp Odayin, they were enthralled and wanted to join Team Strong Heart's efforts.
The student council unanimously set a goal to raise $2,500 for Camp Odayin as their annual community service project. Wow! These kids are incredible!
Welcome to Team Strong Heart, Panthers!
"Oxbow is located in a beautiful facility that opened in August of 2002. We currently house nearly 1000 1st - 5th graders. As part of our student population, we include the district's ESL Newcomer program and two center-based Special Education programs for DCD and high-functioning autistic students. Oxbow is a wonderful school community that is also part of the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Our district has five high schools, seven middle schools and twenty-eight elementary schools, making us now the largest district in Minnesota with nearly 42,000 students!" Heather Hjelle
