This week’s Gathering features PBIS recognition of LMAP students for outstanding efforts during quarter two in achievement of our Way of the Wave motto: Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. As a reminder, PBIS is a framework that cultivates a strong school community through the proactive teaching of key behaviors for student success. Our Friday Gathering starts at 10:40a.m. in the auditorium.
All eighth grade student applications for High School Choice should be submitted no later than this Friday, February 23. Ms. Amber Remackel, our school counselor, has visited eighth grade homerooms to answer questions and support students in making an informed selection.
On April 10, all LMAP families are invited to tour new construction at the lower campus in progress. Last week and over this past weekend the construction team completed the first layer of the asphalt roofing. The construction team hopes to complete the roofing in the next couple of weeks as well as continue framing all floors.
As a friendly reminder, we will not have school on Friday, March 2 as the day is designated for elementary teachers to plan for conferences and secondary teachers to receive professional development in their academic content area.
I look forward to connecting with you at one of our upcoming events.

Linwood Monroe Arts Plus
From the Principal
It is an honor to be a member of this outstanding school community. Linwood Monroe Arts Plus (LMAP) celebrates a rich history of arts-infused education for all learners.
As a long-time educator I have extensive experience in leading schools that embrace the arts. This experience has driven my belief in the power of the arts to transform educational outcomes for all students.
Most recently, I have served as principal of Crosswinds East Metro Arts and Science School in the East Metro Integration District. I have also served as principal of Brooklyn Center Junior/Senior High School, where I was a part of a leadership team that created an arts magnet program. This program twice won Magnet School of Excellence Awards from Magnet Schools of America.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts from St. Olaf College, a Master of Arts from Saint Mary’s University, and an Education Specialist degree and licensure from the University of Saint Thomas. I recently completed my dissertation for a Doctor of Education degree at St. Cloud State University on September 19, 2017.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife Katherine and our two daughters, competing in events and races such as marathons and triathlons, and listening to live music.
I am grateful to be serving the LMAP school community.
Bryan E. Bass, Ed.D.
