LIFE LONG QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE
At 1:00 p.m. Saturday, May 25, more than 260 Falcon High seniors walked together for their last assembly as FHS students. In flowing robes of green and gold, the class of 2019 strode single-file to find their seats for a commencement ceremony at the Broadmoor World Arena.
There is a place in the spotlight for learners like Aislynn Cates, a sixth-grader at Falcon Middle School. “It made me feel unique, and like I can do anything,” shared Cates. She and other D49 students took the stage at the Colorado Miss Amazing pageant March 30. The event transcends pageantry, creating a platform for girls with disabilities to have their voices heard and their faces recognized.
Individuals in D49 aspire every day to make our educational community the “Best Choice to Learn, Work and Lead.” Before the monthly board of education work session March 27, one staff member and two students were celebrated during Fantastic 49 for leading in notable ways.
Friday night-lights in Falcon were bright for Falcon High School’s homecoming activities on Sept. 14. The festivities included fireworks, football game, homecoming court crowning, and special alumni cheer presentation.

Falcon High School Students, Families, and Community Members:
School District 49 is implementing a new fee system, Rycor. As we are transitioning to this new fee system, we are unable to accept course fees during our normally scheduled Fall Check-In.
To respect your time, we will not be conducting a Fall Check-In during the summer of 2019. Please stay tuned for more information on ways to pay your course fees and submit your Kindle Insurance Agreement forms. Thank you for your patience during this system transition.
Students may access their 2019-2020 course schedule through their Student Portal or Parent Portal beginning July 24. If you do not have a portal account, please contact our attendance office.
All other forms that need to be completed at the beginning of the school year can be accessed on the "Back to School" page (located under the "Back to School Resources" section).
Picture Day for the Yearbook and Student ID cards will be on the following days:
Thick autumn clouds spitting rain were of no interest to 145 elementary students in Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 Wednesday. Their attention was riveted on tiny specks that hovered 200 feet above before cascading to the ground. "It's a good white background to see the rockets - we won't lose them in the glare of the sun," said Principal Sheila Hartley, eyes cast upward. With the help of 13 students from the Aero Club of the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps at Falcon High School, 32 youngsters in Miami-Yoder's Rocket Club each pushed a button and launched the Estes model rockets they had built over the past month.
Sometimes it's the little things that count. We are showing students how to choose the healthier choice when it comes to snack bars. No need for chocolate covered bars to fuel your body, pick a nut or fruit based bar instead. We are also watching students gain strength in their core with new balance chairs. Keep an eye out for pictures coming soon of new learning tools that encourage movement in the classroom and the roll out of the test kit of heart monitors for our PE classes. FHS Wellness Team

Starting May 1, student accounts must be funded to purchase meals. No students will be allowed to charge additional debt to their meal account. While District 49 often affords flexibility for young children in its elementary schools, each school year must end with all accounts current.
Dear D49 Families, We are pleased to tell you about an important step forward to fulfill our year-long strategic objective to enhance safety and security at our schools. On Monday, April 1, Sand Creek High School will begin a pilot program of the Blue Point Alert System.
