A Strong Foundation for Learning
Friday, August 31, 2018 12:00 AM


We’re already off to a great start here at Northeast. We have a strong foundation for learning and are committed to making sure all students succeed in our school.

This year, we’re going to continue focusing on what makes us a fantastic school: putting students first, supporting our staff, and making sure our families have many opportunities to engage in their children’s learning.

One way you can stay involved this school year is by helping us as we learn more about Minnesota’s new system to support schools, which is called the North Star Excellence and Equity System. The attached letter below contains more information about what this new system means for our school. It can get a little complicated, but basically it’s saying we have an opportunity at Northeast to think deeply about how we serve each of our students and what we will do to make sure every one of them has the tools and support necessary to succeed. You can learn more at mpls.k12.mn.us/essa.

Together, we must work to make sure every child has a foundation that allows them to achieve their dreams. I look forward to your joining all of us at Northeast in this effort this school year — look forward to hearing more about opportunities to get involved and help us achieve our goals soon.

Thank you for your support and partnership. It’s going to be an awesome school year!
