Rahn Elementary School has been working closely with the District 191 School Board to bring students and parents the…More Rahn Incentive Plan. Starting in the fall of 2010, the incentive was to get more students to participate in the K-Plus Program, which is an all-day kindergarten, by lowering the cost.
Now, the school has two, full-day kindergarten classes and one half -day class.
Rahn Elementary also offers regular choir clases to students in grades 3 - 6, and students in grades 4 - 6 can audition for the auditioned choir.
Also, the school collaborated with Envision Academy for the Arts, a school within a school magnet program. Students performed at Mraz, Burnsville High School's Performing Arts Center. Students in grades 4 - 6 will have the opportunity to perform a Broadway play.
Character Counts is very important to the school. Each month, the school discusses a different character trait, and one grade level teaches the other grade levels about character. The school also has a ceremony where parents are invited to attend, and two students receive an award for demonstrating the character trait that was featured the month before.
Rahn Elementary gathers donations every month for Change for Charity. Last year, the school raised 1,200 pounds of food in one month.
