Thank You For An Amazing Gala
The Spring Gala was a huge success and a great time for all! We had a fantastic turnout and thank everyone who came, participated, donated, and volunteered. Without all of you, this Gala would not have been such a success.
The Art Department also sends a huge THANK YOU to Calli Lamb for making a gorgeous paper crane mobile for the auction. It was simply stunning, and the art teachers are so thankful to Calli for sharing her talent.

Having Fun With History
Our fourth graders had a great time at History Colorado on Tuesday. They learned about the town of Keota in the 1920s. It was founded by dry farming homesteaders and was a bustling area until the Dust Bowl of the 1930s destroyed their crops and most of the residents left the town.
