Welcome to 204!
Gotta love a walleye!

You have found the page of Ms. Kara Lucas!   I am so excited to begin my second year at Jenny Lind and my twentieth year as a MPS educator.  After attending MPS schools as a child, I graduated from the College of Saint Benedict with a BA.  Shortly afterwards, I received my Master's degree from the St. Mary's University, and I am continuously pursuing new learning opportunities.

Last fall was the first chance I had to share in the learning at Jenny Lind, as a 4th grade teacher.  Growing up in North Minneapolis and having many connections to the neighborhood and families has kept me working in the part of the city I call home.  Jenny Lind has a dynamic staff and an even more fantastic community of learners.

Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, please check this page for news and announcements regarding 5th grade!  


Please check back for UPDATES regarding AVID and our NEW reading curriculum, Benchmark Advance.


Families are always welcomed at Jenny Lind.
