Capital Projects Levy for Technology (Tech Levy)
A primary source of technology funding at Mahtomedi Public Schools is a voter-approved Capital Projects Levy for Technology (commonly called a technology levy).

The technology levy funds staff and student devices, critical technology infrastructure, training and tech support, and essential teaching and learning tools. This levy has been in place since 2002 and is up for renewal by voters in our community on November 2, 2021.

A renewal means no tax increase and would provide sustainable, ongoing funding for our current technology devices and technology support for our students and staff.

For more information, visit our website at www.mahtomedi.k12.mn.us/techlevy Vote early or on November 2, 2021. For more information about early voting in Washington County, please visit their website at www.co.washington.mn.us/670/Absentee-Voting

Interactive Science Notebooks
Each year our first-grade students at Wildwood Elementary School study Meal Worms in their insect science unit. Students care and observe their Meal Worms and traditionally the lesson has been via paper and pencil. This year because each of our Wildwood students received an iPad through the district’s Device for Every Learner program, students kept a digital scientific notebook through the Seesaw app. Students used their iPads to add photos, voice recordings, and text labels. The engaging notebooks, allow our teachers to quickly assess their students’ learning. Teachers can check students’ work and give feedback to adjust their work as needed. Using the SeeSaw app also allows families to stay connected with their child’s learning because families can view the scientific notebooks via the parent component of the app.

Class Writes Biography About Principal

Erika Anderson, a second-grade teacher at Wildwood Elementary School wanted her students to get a deeper understanding of biographies so they decided to write one as a class! The class decided to write a biography about Principal Briske and took turns interviewing him and writing sections of the biography. The book includes stories about his family, military service, and hobbies. The stories were all assembled into a printed book and given to Mr. Briske.

Our School
 
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
