Dear Families,


Thank you for joining us for conferences...we really enjoyed our discussions and getting on the same page about your child.  We also appreciate the parents that joined us for Red Rocks! We will be working with the students to write their artist statements to compliment their triptychs.  We would love to have a couple of coupons or gift cards sent our way for photo development so we can display their work. We couldn’t have been more proud!


Next Tuesday, Oct. 18th we will be planting with Hulstrom our bulb garden. Please wear your garden shirt.  We want to thank in advance Lowe’s from Northglenn for helping us with with the proper tools, bulbs, and a stage. They will be installing a beautiful stage for us on Oct. 28th in the morning.
