All students Kindergarten through 12th Grade are allowed to dress down for free.
Back To School Night
The Elementary School is hosting Back to School Night on Thursday, September 14, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. We invite you to attend to receive an overview of your child’s classes, homework expectations and grading policies. In addition, suggestions on how to best support your child’s learning outside the classroom will be offered.
There will also be a presentation, Programs and Performance Ratings, focusing on the Elementary School’s offerings and its scores on 2017 State assessments. The Elementary has earned a preliminary Performance Plan rating from the State of Colorado, on the School Performance Framework. Performance is the highest plan category assigned to individual schools.
We are very proud of our students’ achievements and our staff’s commitment and dedication to increasing student academic achievement and growth. We also acknowledge our families who are partners in this endeavor.
