In U.S. History this year, my goal is to challenge students to continue their development of: critical thinking skills, reading, writing, analysis, understanding of historical perspective, and understanding of the relationship of past events and the impact those events have on us today and our future. This year we will be using Google classroom as the main website for class.  Your child has been shown how to access this website.  They will have to login to the site for you if you want or need to see what we are studying in class.  Students, if you need help logging into google classroom, please follow the link on the left for directions. For Distance Learning, all assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. Please follow the link on the left to access Google Classroom.

Our School
Mahtomedi Middle School provides programming to allow each student to find success academically, socially, and emotionally. Our curriculum provides students exploratory opportunities in a variety of curricular areas that provide career and college ready experiences: engineering, art, music, health, family and consumer science, phy-ed, and Spanish. Our experienced staff is focused on the social and emotional development of the early adolescent and provides small advisory groups and individual success coaching. Academic offerings include accelerated and honors courses in math, science, and language arts as well as support classes for those students who need extra attention in skill-building and time management. In addition to academic coursework, our students also have opportunities to engage and explore through our co-curricular offerings. Individual student attention is the strength of Mahtomedi Middle School.
