Congratulations to Stephanie Hubbard, LMAP special education staff, and our student performers on another amazing musical featured at this Friday’s gathering. It was so great to observe all of our performers express their understanding through movement, video, and instrumental music. An all around wonderful performance to launch us into spring break.
In addition, MCA testing will continue throughout April and conclude the second week of May. We thank you for your support in ensuring that students are prioritizing a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast in preparation for a successful testing experience. To learn more about the role of MCA testing please check out the MDE website page for Statewide Testing.
On April 10, we will be hosting a tour of the lower campus construction project at 4:30p.m., we will meet in the cafeteria before entering the new construction zone. We will be able to observe the progress made and learn about key items in this summer’s final phase of construction. All are welcome to attend. The LMAP PTA will be meeting after the tour at 6:30 p.m. at the upper campus in the commons.
Lastly, on behalf of the LMAP staff, we hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable spring break. As a friendly reminder, spring break begins Friday, March 30 and ends on Sunday, April 8.
Dr. Bass, Principal
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.
