Ms. Amy Corrigan

Hello!  My name is Ms. Amy Corrigan, and this year I will be teaching Writing Workshop in 6th-grade.  I am happy to be starting my 9th year (2021-2022) at Global Arts Plus-Upper and my 23nd year in education!

This photo was taken during the 2019 6th-grade artist residency with Minneapolis photographer Wing Young Huie.  I look forward to collaborating with Wing again during our 6th-residency in November, 2021.

Feel free to contact me by e-mail with any questions.  Let's have a great year together!


:) Peace, Ms. Amy Corrigan



  • Update for the End of the School Year

    Hello families,
    And, just like that: the school year is in its last chapter. In-person students will attend for their last day on Thursday, June 10th.  The last official school day is Friday, June 11, so students should still take attendance on that day.
    It’s crunch time right now.  Please remind your child (as we will also!) that all student work must be turned in by 4:00pm on that last day, Friday, June 11.
    Below is a list of "priority" assignments that students should have completed by Friday, June 11th. You can also check Schoology by logging in yourself at

    Any missing assignments
    Fantasy Story (summative)
    Post-Assessment; Summer Reading Goal
    Summative Part 1 and Part 2 (Dakota War Project)
    End of Year PLP (personal learning plan) Project
    We are wrapping up a very challenging year and want to celebrate all the persistence, collaboration, and kindness that we have seen.  Classes will continue as usual Monday-Wednesday (June 7-9).  On Thursday, in-person students will attend their Period 4 elective class, participate in choice rotations, eat lunch, and end the day with their Foundations class. Our virtual learning students will celebrate during our last 6th-grade Social Gathering on FRIDAY  3-4pm (Meet code: GAP6ALL).
    Thank you for the support you've given both students and teachers as we navigated this ever-changing, complicated year. It was such a pleasure to get to know such a remarkable group of 6th-graders! :) We have seen so much growth, and we are hopeful that we can close this year off knowing that we were stronger together!
    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you again for an amazing year. Have a restful summer!
    In Peace, Amy Corrigan & Gracie Young 🙂
