Teachers Prepare for a New Report Card
Teachers have been busy preparing for a new report card.  As you recall, the new report card will describe your child’s progress on the following four components of the District’s guaranteed and viable curriculum: World Class Outcomes, state content standards, 21st century skills (problem solving, resiliency, civic responsibility, health and wellness, systems thinking and financial responsibility) and the 4cs (communication, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking).  Teachers have been working collaboratively to define each of these elements in terms of classroom instruction and assessment.  We look forward to providing you with additional information in future communication.

Student Council Coat Drive
Student Council will be hosting a coat drive October 1st   through November 30th.  Please bring gently used coats to school throughout the month of October.  Coats will be distributed to charitable organizations, homeless shelters and the thousands of Coloradans in need.

Digger Dash
