INNOVATIVE, RELEVANT AND PERSONALIZED
“We’re learning new ways that we can engage students in the classroom with updated activities that use technology to get students excited about learning,” said Patty Gioscia, Skyview Middle School assistant principal, at the Colorado Springs GAFE Summit July 20.
"We enjoy the opportunity to see the artwork from our students across the district," said Gene Hammond, District 49 transportation director. "To see the importance of safety on our buses through the eyes of those we serve reminds us of the important job we do each day."
More than 80 graduates received diplomas May 20 at The Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs.
"A leader doesn't have to be perfect," said Sophia Mayhugh, seventh grade at Springs Studio for Academic Excellence when asked what she learned at the annual District 49 Middle School Leadership Conference at Sand Creek High School April 15. "A leader makes mistakes, but always tries to do the next right thing."
"It shows how well our district works together," said Lori Hall, Springs Studio for Academic Excellence. "Although we're at different schools, we really aren't different. We can learn, work and have fun together."
After three days of closures following an historic winter storm in north easter El Paso County, students returned to class Feb. 4 in District 49.
The Foundation for Blended and Online Learning recently announced its 2016 Student Scholarship recipients. After receiving over 750 applications, it honored 31 high school graduates in 21 states across the country. Springs Studio 2016 graduate Sierra Jarmon was one of them.

"This is a long term strategy," said Gene Hammond, transportation director. "It will take many years for our entire fleet to be entirely seat belt equipped, but we have targeted our trip buses, those most likely to travel on high speed roads and into the mountains, as our priority for equipping with seat belts."
