Horizon Middle School staff spotted art teacher Jorddan Kleindl Wadholm touching up the halls before school earlier this month. This window mural was painted by Jorddan and her sister to add brightness and personality to the hallways! Many staff and students admire her work as they walk the halls to class. It is small acts like this that make our schools a better place! #SpudPride

Let’s get to know our team! Today we are introducing paraprofessional North Self! North works at the Moorhead Online Academy. 🔶 When asked what inspires them most, they said: “My students inspire me every day. I know it sounds cliché, but watching such young students work so hard to adapt and support one another throughout our ongoing pandemic has inspired me more than any other teaching opportunity has. Despite a world that continues to change and strain, my students choose to be patient and kind to one another, and I hope we're learning to be more patient and kind to ourselves as well.” Thanks for all you do, North!

Join us behind the scenes at MAPS! Today we are taking a look at the student news at Dorothy Dodds. Did you know that 4th grade students at Dorothy Dodds release a daily video? Two students from each classroom are elected by their teachers to be anchors for three broadcasts. Students sit in front of a green screen and read from a script. This is pulled together by media specialist Ann Woell with the help of many other individuals. They even have their very own Dorothy Dodds theme song!
