Join us behind the scenes at MAPS! Today we are taking a look at the story of the bison statue at Horizon Middle School. Did you know that the bison statue was part of a local art event in 2005 called Herd About the Prairie? Forty fiberglass bison were created and painted by local artists to be sold in an auction to help fund creative projects and artists in our community. An additional four bison were given to local schools to be painted by students, one of which went to Horizon. The bison was painted by Spud art club students and still sits outside the art room!

First grade students at Ellen Hopkins recently finished an art project that focuses on caring for the land and indigenous peoples’ history. Students read the book Grandfather Buffalo, discussed grasslands and prairies in our region and studied artist Gordon Coons. The students practiced a variety of art techniques such as color theory, adding textures, printmaking and creating a sculpture. We love to see what our talented Spuds are learning and creating in our schools! #SpudPride

Join us behind the scenes at MAPS! Today we are taking a look at how Robert Asp Elementary got its name. Did you know that Robert Asp Elementary was named after a Moorhead Junior High School guidance counselor who constructed a viking ship? Even after being diagnosed with leukemia, Robert Asp held strong to his dreams of sailing to Norway and spent years constructing the Hjemkomst viking ship. In 1980, the ship made its debut as it sailed from the Duluth Harbor. Asp died before he was able to sail to Norway, but his family kept his dream alive. A crew of twelve sailed the Hjemkomst from Duluth to Norway in 1982. Robert Asp exemplifies creativity, determination and commitment, and his ship can still be seen today at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead. To learn more about this fascinating history visit >> https://www.hcscconline.org/hjemkomst40.html
