    Thank you School Board Members!
    I would like to thank our local leaders for devoting their time to supporting public education and serving our schools. Their job entails an endless string of meetings and school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals, and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make. We are very fortunate to have the board that we do in Park Rapids. - Community Member

    Thank you Todd Fritze! 
    I can't even begin to explain how much Coach Fritze has influenced so many kids lives. He genuinely cares about the kids he teaches and coaches. He has taught so many life lessons that have stuck with kids for around 24 years. He is a great man and deserves to be recognized for all of his time that he puts into his teaching as well as his coaching, for pushing kids to be the very best they can be, for taking people under his wing, and so much more. -Student 


    Thank you Aarin Galzki!

    Mrs. Galzki is an AMAZING phy. ed. teacher. Every day she is upbeat, organized, and has fun activities. Even more impressive is how she incorporates teaching the kids important life skills such as cooperation, respect, and self- discipline in a fun way. My students love their phy. ed. time with her. She is truly top notch!! Thanks for everything you do for the children of Century Elementary!  -Co-Worker
