Partnership with Chisago Lakes School District opened alumni room five years ago
Above an ordinary door in a busy hallway at Chisago Lakes High School you’ll see the simple words: Alumni Room. Tucked in a small room just beyond that door lie a rainbow of school colors, a wealth of memories, and 150 years of history of the Chisago Lakes School District and its predecessors, the Chisago City, Taylors Falls and Lindstrom-Center City-Shafer schools. The next time you see that door open, you’re invited to stop in.
