You Can Change the Future
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 10:40 AM

In Minnesota, less than 60% of Minnesota eighth graders are proficient in math. These students urgently need your help, because learning algebra is a skill that opens a gate to higher education. You can make a difference. Commit to serve half a year/one year as a Minnesota Math Corps tutor, and experience life-changing growth. Math Corps is an AmeriCorps program that is helping ensure that all Minnesota youth are proficient in math by the end of eighth grade.

Olson Middle School is actively looking for a Math Corps tutor.  Click the Math Corps image above for additional information.

The My Story/My Brilliance project at Olson Middle School connects students with their brilliance and their understanding of themselves as contributors to a thriving community. My Story My Brilliance puts students at the center of the school experience. Students explore where they are from, who they are now, and who they are becoming. There is an emphasis on student voice and student choice. My Story My Brilliance provides academic, social and emotional learning. Additional school counselors and reflective journaling personalize the learning for our students. Relationship building is a key component. Teachers work in teams to facilitate personalized learning projects. Students see themselves as members of the global community. My Story My Brilliance helps us achieve Olson’s mission of ensuring our students discover and maximize their brilliance as scholars and members of our global community.
