School District 49 would like to hear from its alumni and their families. Are you preparing for graduation? Did you graduate, and then move on to a college or career? Who inspired you or changed your life in a positive way? Do they know about it?
Think back to your elementary school teachers. Did anyone take an extra step toward providing a safe and caring environment? How about your middle school, did someone spark an interest in developing a special skill? High school educators frequently refine interests in specific colleges or careers. Did someone go above and beyond your family's expectations to ensure your preparedness for your next phase in life? Did you benefit from one of District 49's specialized programs, such as alternative learning, blended learning (online and classroom) or homeschool enrichment?

Responses to Graduate Survey
"I am proud to say that I went K-12 in this district. I then went on Adams State College to get my music education degree. When I graduated from college I taught in another district but soon found myself wanting to come back. I have been teaching music in the district for 11 years now. Both of my parents graduated from Falcon, I did and now I have both of my boys in the district. Good place for all of us."

"I was a military child and I moved around a lot. Sand Creek High School was very welcoming and it was like I was a student the whole time — I had moved in the middle of my freshman year. I had really good teachers, Mrs. Moon and Mrs. Gugeler to name a few. The teachers were willing to teach and I could tell they loved their job." Comment by Natasha Johnson, Sand Creek High School graduate of 2010, on Oct. 27, 2012.
