    First, thank you to all of our LMAP families who have generously shared items (fans, coolers of ice, cool towels, popsicles, etc.) to support students and staff during the warmer than seasonal weather patterns. The district has posted several documents to communicate further steps taken to ensure students and staff “stay safe and hydrated during hot weather.”

    Below is an excerpt from the “Heat Guidelines” prepared by the school district. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly or click on the following link to review the entire document.

    Additionally, as the school year nears an end, we take time to recognize LMAP students for their continued growth throughout the school year. Here are several of our remaining events where we will be honoring student success:

    * This Friday, June 1st is our School-wide Outdoor Gathering located outdoors at Palace Recreation Center at 10:30a.m. for all students and        families.

    * Wednesday, June 6th is our 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony at 11:00a.m. in the Auditorium at the Upper Campus.

    * Thursday, June 7th will be the final Lower Campus Gathering at 3:15p.m. in the Cafeteria

    We look forward to connecting with you at one of our final events of the school year.

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.
