The Academic Awards at Mahtomedi High School recognizes a student’s past year’s academic achievement. It takes considerable time and effort to receive this recognition and we are very proud of this achievement. At school, we recognized students by presenting them with their Mahtomedi Letter (if it was their first Letter) and a certificate.
In the program, you’ll see that we asked all of our Academic Award recipients, "What class or learning experience at Mahtomedi High School has shaped your academic growth or passions?" These statements highlight the transformational experiences happening at Mahtomedi High School. It is exciting to see our students being reflective learners and how they are finding their academic passions and pursuing their personal excellence.
Every year, music educators from around the state of Minnesota gather to celebrate music education at the annual Minnesota Music Educators Association conference. At the event, music educators experience high-quality learning sessions from fellow music educators, college music professors, and professionals in the field of performance and conducting. We are thrilled to announce that the Mahtomedi High School Zephyr Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the 2022 Minnesota Music Educators conference!
The Mahtomedi High School Zephyr Wind Ensemble is a group of students from 10th-12th grade. This group is in its second year of existence, and students must audition to be a part of it. Students play typical concert band instruments (like flute, trumpet, percussion, etc), but it is a smaller group that tends to only have one person on a part, and they play more challenging music.
The Zephyr Wind Ensemble will perform at the conference on February 18 and their performance will focus on Women in Music: honoring women composers, conductors, and performers.
