Students at Minnetonka Middle School West worked together to raise money for their school – but this wasn’t a typical “sell as much as you can” type of fundraiser. The campaign was called “Anchored in Kindness,” and students earned money toward their cause by collecting one-time pledges to “pay forward” the acts of service or connection they participated in during the event.
The mission of the Minnetonka School District is to ensure all students envision and pursue their highest aspirations while serving the greater good. In a community that transcends traditional definitions of excellence, we use learning and teaching as tools to value and nurture each person, inspire in everyone a passion to excel with confidence and hope, and instill expectations that stimulate extraordinary achievement in the classroom and in life.

On October 29, the Minnetonka High School Science Department and International Baccalaureate (IB) Program hosted about 100 elementary school students to celebrate Halloween with a series of spooky-themed science activities. Students and families were able to explore a variety of interactive stations designed by IB students and staff.
Students gained valuable, unique skills managing multiple aspects of the business. “The biggest highlight has been the ownership the students have over the business,” shared Erin Valenta, Transition Education Coordinator for Minnetonka Schools. “As it is a real-life product and sale, it has a different meaning to them versus a classroom simulation.”
