DEDICATED TO EXCELLENCE AND LEARNING
Camaraderie and excitement filled the gym at Vista Ridge High School April 24 for the Unified basketball game against the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Unified basketball brings together students with and without disabilities on the same athletic team, and promotes inclusion through sports.
At a typical Fantastic 49 celebration, sentiments share a common theme, touching on hard work and commitment to District 49. Once again, the presentation before the April 11 BOE meeting included warm accolades for students and two D49 staff members, plus a district-wide department.
For a moment during the match, Bella Mitchell felt her advantage begin to slip. “I actually got a little scared at one point, because she had turned really far and my hips came off the mat,” the VRHS wrestler recalled. “I was scared that she was going to flip me over.”
Team members across District 49 impact learning in many ways. For some, it is teaching students in the classroom. For others, it is about helping ensure students and staff have the best learning environment possible. The board of education honored five staff members during Fantastic 49 festivities before the regular board meeting January 10 for their commitment to D49.
Thanks to partnerships with local military installations, D49 students with parents who serve in the armed forces have programs available made just for them. During Fantastic 49 festivities Dec. 13 before the regular monthly Board of Education meeting, Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base and Schriever Air Force Base were honored for their collaborative support of District 49.
School pride was in the air, and cheering fans were in the stands, as the Vista Ridge High School football team stood ready for competition. The Wolves celebrated homecoming Sept. 14 with a football game and fanfare.
Seventeen D49 teachers received accolades from principals, and recommendations from students and parents to prompt selection as their school’s Teacher of the Year.
