Welcome to United South Central Elementary!


Welcome!! My name is Tracey Magnuson and I am the USC Elementary Principal.  We are very excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year!!  USC continues to show our dedication and passion for teaching students to achieve the highest standards. I am proud to say that USC Elementary has been recognized as one of the top performing Title I schools in the state of Minnesota!! For the 5th straight year, our students have shown growth in reading and and math.  We have earned REWARD SCHOOL status for the 4 years the state gave this distinction!!!  This is an outstanding accomplishment and I'm proud to say our staff continues to strive for student success.  At USC we are committed to giving students every possible opportunity to grow and meet high expectations.   We are a PBIS school, and we have 1:1 technology program K-12 to encourage a high quality learning environment that blends the best of the traditional classroom with the wise use of online educational tools. I am a firm believer that ALL children can learn and deserve the best education to prepare them to be successful community members in their adult lives.

My husband and I are adjusting to being empty nesters.  Our twins graduated from Faribault Schools a year ago and have moved to the next adventures in their lives.  Jason is attending South Central Technical College Mankato this year and Matthew has entered the working world as an apprentice electrician.  I enjoy spending time at our cabin near New London, MN, bowling, running/walking, reading, and getting together with family and friends.
