Minneapolis Public Schools is in the process of reviewing and proposing potential changes to the minimum graduation requirements. The goal of the review and subsequent recommendations is to:


•       Meet minimum graduation requirements set by the State of Minnesota

•       Prioritize equity and rigor

•       Enable the district to improve graduation rates across the district,           especially for students of color

•       Include expectations of post-secondary institutions

•       Provide time in school schedules for classes designed to accelerate learning

•       Increase student access to self-selected electives

The Parent/Guardian Survey (English) is a short 6 question survey about the proposed changes. Your feedback will be used to help inform the final recommendations. To have your feedback considered, please complete the survey by Friday, October 17th.

King Arthur Bread Making photos here!

5th grade~Keewaydin 3rd and 5th graders had the opportunity to learn to bake bread with Mrs. Gray from the King Arthur flour company. We learned some facts about bread that use science and math like the reaction from yeast and sugar make carbon dioxide (CO2) that when trapped in dough makes it rise! We learned fractions are measurements which need to be exact when baking. Each student went home with a bread making kit to make a loaf for family and one to donate. It was fun!  By, Isabella
