STRIVING TO EMBRACE LEARNING
The work of a teacher is full of passion and commitment. It requires initiative from process improvement to individualized attention. We celebrate our educators for the important role they have. We salute them for the valuable service they provide to students and the community.
Eighth grade students at Horizon Middle School hosted second-graders from each of the three Sand Creek Zone elementary schools May 3 for a science show. In addition to helping the second-graders learn, the science show is an opportunity for the HMS students to learn and practice leadership skills.
Preschool students at Springs Ranch Elementary School hosted parents, grandparents, and older learners April 27 for the second annual recycle fair. As guests walked through classrooms, the students presented creations made at home using recycled materials and explained what they learned in the process. The event serves as the culmination of a unit on recycling.
Ninth-grader Andy Hong, 15, explains the health risk of using tobacco products during a health and wellness expo April 25 at Sand Creek High School in District 49. The annual expo unites local advocates for healthy choices with families from Sand Creek Zone elementary, middle and high schools.
“Families created rain clouds, rainbows and weather sensory bottles together,” said Avelyn Green, early childhood dean, describing family engagement night activities April 18. “As part of our spectacular summer science theme, they also went on a dinosaur dig, made volcanoes and watched colors fizz.”
New Dismissal Procedures: Please read the dismissal procedure update on the leadership updates page. As time goes on, the routines and procedures will become second nature. Remember to keep the middle, front walkway clear and stand behind the grade level signs. This will help us be able to connect you with your children in a safe manner.
Beginning Monday, June 5, free meals are available at Evans International Elementary School. The breakfast and lunch services are part of the USDA summer food service program. Breakfast and lunch are provided to all children in District 49, ages 1-18, for free.
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.
