  • Busy Construction Season Blasts Off with Wall-Breaking Ceremony

    The walls at Sand Creek High School started tumbling down on June 6 when the community came together for a groundbreaking, or rather “wall breaking,” ceremony at the school. Administrators, students, and board members took turns knocking down walls to make way for a variety of school improvements and additions.

  • 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."

  • Building an Identity: A name. A mascot. School colors.

    In the next few months, we'll break ground on a new elementary school just north of Falcon Middle School. A school is more than the walls, doors and roof. It's about the students and educators working and learning together each day. Having a name, a mascot, and school colors to proudly wear is an important part of the identity of any school. Share your thoughts and opinions with us.

    To help increase efficiency in the transportation department and maintain relatively low rates for the long-term, the Board of Education directors are considering a change to the fee structure for the 2017-18 school year. Moving from a structure with only per-ride, monthly and annual payment options to per-ride, quarterly, semester and annual payment options will provide additional cost saving options when families purchase annual or semester passes.
