School News

8th Grade Baby Pictures:


8th Grade Parents,

Each year we like to highlight our 8th graders by including their baby pictures with their 8th grade portraits in our yearbook. If you would like to participate in this fun yearbook tradition, please send us one photo of your child when they were a baby or toddler to include in this year's yearbook! Pictures can be sent to Mrs. Weimer at jweimer@mssd14.org. Hard copy photos may be left with the front office to be scanned and returned. Thank you very much! We can't wait to see how much your child has grown!

World Language:


This week World Language students in Mme Huntington's classes are eating crepes to celebrate the holiday season!

GT Program:


Parents,

November and December have been short school months, but your students and I have been able to meet individually and in groups. One of the highlights has been Pikes Peak Business and Education Alliance (PPBEA) coming to present to our students. Students have created accounts on PPBEA.org where we can begin to do some career exploration and pathways, and connect to workplace learning opportunities.

Additionally, we have a district newsletter just for our GT Families. Here is the GT Newsletter link and please reach out if you need anything!

Health and Vision Screenings:


From the Health Office:

Parents, student vision & hearing screenings will be conducted starting in January after winter break. Parents will be notified of any concerns or need for follow up.
