Anishinabe Academy, a Minneapolis Public School, is a magnet school focusing on high academic achievement through Native American culture and language. We welcome and invite families and students of all cultures.
Target has partnered with Feeding America to create Meals for Minds — an innovative program to feed children so that they can perform better in school. Target committed $2.3 million to Meals for Minds, and an additional $1.2 million to support local food banks and other school-based food programs across the country.
We will provide every student with a 30 lb. food basket once a month. There will be a variety of foods provided for families to choose from.
Congratulations to Ida Downwind, a district program facilitator for Indian Education, who was named National Elder of the Year by the National Indian Education Association for her lifelong contributions to Indian education. Ida has been in MPS for seven years. During her career, she has taught students from early childhood through postsecondary in settings on reservations and in urban areas. She leads professional development around best practices for working with American Indian students, using her indigenous lens to translate cultural teachings into practical classroom strategies. Ida has developed a positive behavior reinforcement model using the Seven Grandfather teachings. Thank you, Ida, for your work with MPS students and our community!
