Montrose School of Innovation Earns the Award Two Years in a Row
The Minnesota Department of Eduction (MDE) has named Montrose Elementary School of Innovation (MESI) and Northwinds (NES) Elementary School 2015-16 Reward Schools for having demonstrated exceptional student outcomes and success in closing achievement gaps. While NES is celebrating for the first time, MESI is celebrating for the second year in a row.
BHM Schools wants to ensure that we are communicating with parents in the most effective way possible. On Wednesday, October 12, 2016, mid-morning, the district will send out a district-wide emergency test message to parents and guardians from our parent notification system. You should receive a call, email and/or text messages (whatever information you have on file with your child's school). Especially with the upcoming winter months, we want to be sure parents/guardians don't miss any important messages from the school or the district about cancellations or delays. Remember this is ONLY a TEST and NO action will likely be necessary.

Just 10 years ago, the world didn't have app designers or social media managers. Who created and filled those jobs-students. Montrose Elementary Principal Tony Steffes and his staff have started to challenge the "traditional" educational experience. They have found new ways to engage students in learning that is relevant for today's world and the unknown future to come. Little by little they are infusing more and more technology into the classes, which has allowed kids to be more creative.
It's just two months into 2016 and it's already time to start thinking about this fall! Kindergarten registration nights are happening in February and March along with preschool open house nights for Early Childhood Family Education. Be sure your child has also been through screening. This is a FREE service to families and ideally should be done by the time your child is 3.5-4 years old. Read on for more information and dates.
