    Hello! I’m hoping that Sauk Rapids-Rice Early Childhood Education can also be included in your publications when referring to Open House and other future school events. The Early Childhood programs run out of Hillside School in Sauk Rapids. We have Early Childhood Family Education classes and School Readiness Preschool classes at both Hillside and Rice Elementary. Thanks!!!
