As we enter the holiday season and the season of giving, I wanted to reach out to our families and friends in Minneapolis. The best gift that a child can receive is your support in his or her pursuit of a high-quality education experience.
There is nothing more important than preparing students to be successful. I see the future leaders of Minneapolis and our world in the bright eyes and intelligence of our students.

Since 2006, the third Thursday in November has been set aside in Minneapolis Public Schools as Native American Family Involvement Day (NAFID). This year, NAFID will be held on Thursday, November 17. This day is designated to recognize the importance of American Indian families being involved in their child's education, and to help to build trust between students, families and schools. MPS encourages all schools to celebrate NAFID to honor the efforts of American Indian students and families, and to celebrate the unique contributions of Native Americans to education and to our school district.
I am pleased to announce that I will again host seven Soup with the Supe events in different areas of the school district to connect with the community by serving soup and engaging in a town hall discussion. Soup with the Supe allows me to hear directly from our stakeholders in a welcoming, interactive environment. Student entertainment, food, childcare and interpreters will be available at each event.
Celebrating our successes; working together to achieve more

I am pleased to announce that for the first time in six years, Minneapolis Public Schools has made progress in narrowing the achievement gap between students of color and white students. We could not have hoped for more encouraging state test results.
Significant across-the-board gains were made in reading for American Indian, African American, Asian and Hispanic students. The gap was also narrowed for all groups except American Indian students in math.
These results validate the hard work and focus of our staff members, community partners, volunteers and our families who make important contributions to student achievement every day. We still have significant gains to make, but this progress in the right direction motivates us to continue carrying out the work of our strategic plan.

Creating a Culture of Yes

As we begin the 2011-2012 school year, I am excited to see our students engaged in learning and achieving high results. Minneapolis Public Schools teachers and staff members are prepared to promote student success and accelerate student achievement.

We have been working to strengthen our organization internally and externally with a specific goal in mind: "Creating a culture of yes."

We are MPS and we are committed to our mission: We exist to ensure that all students learn. We are also committed to our vision: Every child college ready.

We are MPS and we are preparing for success
The Minneapolis Public Schools will welcome students in grades 1-12 back to school on August 29 and our new kindergarten students on August 31.
It is important that all of our students arrive at school on the first day ready to learn. Not only are we preparing for the upcoming school year, but we are also working to prepare students for future success.
Students are at the heart of what we do and everyone plays a role in helping them succeed. MPS staff, community members and families support our efforts each day. Whether you serve students in a school building, support them in your neighborhood or care for them in your own home as a parent, your support is essential for student success.
