Join us behind the scenes at MAPS! Today we are talking about the importance of early childhood screening. Did you know that all children entering JumpStart Preschool or Kindergarten must have completed an early childhood screening? It is recommended to be completed as soon as your child turns three. This screening is a one-time growth and development check required by the State of Minnesota and is offered at the Early Learning Center for free. For more information and to book an appointment, click here >> https://www.isd152.org/o/elc/page/early-childhood-screening

Meet Moorhead Online Elementary Academy Teacher Adrianne Lecuyer. Adrianne’s favorite part of the job is, “Building relationships with students and getting to see them grow over a year working together. Being able to hear a child read, quite possibly for the first time, is so amazing!” 🌸 Enjoys gardening flowers and vegetables ☕️ Favorite treats are black coffee and dark chocolate 🔶 Favorite quote: “When life gives you mountains, put on your boots and start hiking.” #MeetOurTeam #SpudPride
It’s the little things that make a world of a difference! 🧡🖤 Recently a special education teacher sent an email thanking one of our staff for going above and beyond in her classroom. We want to highlight Steve Moore, Director of Operations and Emergency Management. A classroom of students was feeling a little nervous after the water main break at Robert Asp. To help calm their nerves, Steve Moore quickly arrived to show students photos and explain that everything was okay. Even though he didn’t have to, Steve didn’t hesitate to jump in and assure the students that they were safe and secure. We are so proud to have Steve as a member of the Spud team. #SpudPride
This time of year has us feeling cheerful ... like this Spud Cheerleading photo from 1992! #TBT

Congratulations to MHS senior Jeremy Murray who was awarded a four-year NROTC scholarship for $180,000. Jeremy plans on attending college and joining the Marine Corps! Out of 23,000 who start the application process, only 1,500 are awarded nationwide. From there, less than 300 students choose the option to be a Marine. While he hasn’t made a final decision yet, Jeremy plans to attend the University of Minnesota or Duke University. Throughout his college career, he will attend training each summer in different areas across the country, attend officer candidate school in Virginia and graduate as second lieutenant. Congratulations for receiving such a well-deserved scholarship! #SpudPride
