St. Jude’s Discovery Center began it’s partnership in 2011. This school partnership provides a unique opportunity to “buddy” with students in the elementary school and benefit from their wonderful facilities. One other unique aspect of this site is the partnership with Coventry Senior Living Center, through which the children have a chance to develop ongoing relationships with Senior Citizens.

Site Director Shannon Buncher earned her B.A. in Elementary Education with Preprimary emphasis from the University of MN, Morris.
