Students Learn From the Experts
This week fourth graders had the opportunity to learn from experts in their field.  Students are currently studying cause and effect and the process of inquiry as they explore the solar system.  Fourth grade parent and SAC chair, Christopher Frame, shared his knowledge of space.  He shared what he had to consider when developing artifacts that were then sent to space and how they withheld the new environment.  Kim Ranson, the Colorado state legislative representative for Douglas County, also spoke to students about civic responsibility.  Her insights helped students analyze the characteristics of effective citizenship.  We thank both Mr. Frame and Ms. Ranson for sharing their knowledge with us.

Student Council PJ & Read In
Student council is hosting a Read In next Friday, April 17th.  Students who would like to come in their pajamas can bring change in to do so.  All proceeds will benefit our new school garden.
Bullying Versus Normal Conflict
As we work towards promoting student wellness in all areas, we want to ensure that every student in Douglas County gains an understanding of bullying behavior versus normal conflict.  Bullying is defined as repeated, purposeful, serious emotional or physical actions that are done with little remorse or limited effort to problem solve.  Normal conflict is defined as accidental or occasional incidents that are met with remorse. We encourage you to support our efforts by discussing this month’s topic - “helping or hurting someone”- with your child.

Lost & Found
Please have your child visit the lost and found.  We have several articles of clothing. 

Drop Off
Morning supervision does not begin until 8:55 AM.  Please refrain from dropping off your child until then.
