  • Firebirds Honor Fallen Father, All Veterans During Assembly

    “This year one of our Firebirds reached out and shared with me that her father was killed in Afghanistan in 2011,” said Karen Hobson, a nearly 17-year U.S. Army veteran and FMS administrative assistant, who planned the school's Veterans Day assembly. Hobson presented a folded American flag to a group of students in the middle of the school’s gymnasium. The students performed a traditional flag folding ceremony. “The American flag drapes the casket with the remains of a fallen hero, with the field of blue placed over the left shoulder,” said Hobson. “The flag is folded and given to the next of kin. Would you please rise to honor those who never made it home with a moment of silence and the playing of taps,” said Hobson.

  • Special Olympics Brings Social and Physical Support for Students in Extended School Year Program

    Representatives from the southeast Colorado Special Olympics regional office taught bocce ball to students enrolled in District 49's extended school year program June 7 at Sand Creek High School. The extended year program serves qualifying students with special needs for four weeks at the beginning of the traditional summer break. The program focuses on retaining information and skills that students learn during the traditional school year. The extra learning helps increase retention and ensures a strong start to the school year. "When we are in the classroom we are working hard on reading and math," said Bridgette Martin, ESY coordinator for secondary students. "A lot of the students have social goals too and this is a practical and fun way to work on those goals."

  • "Blinding With Kindness" to Launch Firebird Ambassadors Program

    “We are greeting the students and encouraging them to be kind to one another and have a great day as they enter the building for school,” said Teresa Murphy, sheriff deputy and Falcon Zone school resource officer. “It’s also the first event for the new Firebird Ambassadors program." Murphy, a 20-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, has been serving as a school resource officer in Falcon Zone for nearly six years. Working with students in grades K-12 has inspired Murphy and Kristyn Nordeman, fellow sheriff deputy and SRO, to create a new club to promote a positive message to the school community. “The Firebird Ambassador program will inspire students to cultivate kindness and gratitude,” said Murphy. “The goal is to develop a student culture where everyone feels appreciated and recognizes compassion, honesty, and simple acts of kindness.”
