Dear Seward Families:

Spring is finally here! Our learning community has been very busy learning on and off our campus! The Rope Power assembly was a huge success. Our 8th graders heard from University of Minnesota medical students. Several of our students heard Aar Manta, a Somali poet and musician, at the Cedar Cultural Center. Trips to the Ordway and Arboretum continue for our elementary children. Culture and continent studies are evident as I see maps, time lines and projects supporting the learning in our E-1 and E-2 classes. Middle school parents and staff are preparing for the Eighth Grade Celebration. Verlene and several of our parents have been planning Walking Wednesdays for Seward students and staff. Many thanks for your time and effort providing these great educational opportunities.

On Wednesday, April 29th, we will have our first Walking Wednesday. Buses will bring students to the 2600 block of 31st Avenue South where staff and parents will meet them and walk to Seward! Parents and children who do not take the bus are welcome to join us. Please park away from the drop off location so you won’t block the buses. If you don’t want your child to participate, please call Amanda at (612) 668-4950.

Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) testing continues—please see the Seward website for the testing schedule.

Please welcome Saeed Hussen to Seward. He is serving as a Somali parent liaison and is a long-time Seward parent.

Sincerely,

Tammy Goetz
