Welcome to St. Anthony Elementary School! 

I am proud to serve the students, staff, and families of this school as the principal.  I have been in education for twenty-eight years and have provided leadership at both the elementary and high school levels for seventeen years.  In addition to administration, I taught middle school students for ten years and and high school students for one year.  My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology, a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership, and an Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership.
 
My goal is that each day every child will learn, be happy, supported, and grow in knowledge that every child of God is a special gift.  As a Catholic school leader, I am dedicated to support and promote the same Catholic values that parents live and want for their children.
 
Please feel free to visit our school or contact me anytime at shelly.bauer@nuacs.com or (507)354-2928.


“I slept, and dreamed that life was a joy.  I woke, and saw that life was but service.  I served and understood that service was joy.”  Rabindranath Tagore
