Emberly School #1979

The School District of Rays was formed in 1919, later renamed “Emberly” after a local family who donated the land.

A wooden, one-room school was built on NE 22-7-7w at the northwestern end of the municipality north of Roseisle. Ukrainian settlers in the area held church services in the school. They later purchased land less than a mile distant where they built St. Peter and Paul church and established a cemetery.

Emberly School closed in 1961 and the school district consolidated with St. Claude. The cairn was unveiled in 1999, and dedicated to the students, parents, and teachers of Emberly School.
