From the IB Coordinator

IB 2020 testing fees will be emailed to parents and added to student accounts (available to pay through eFunds) this month. Parents will be expected to complete a google form acknowledging the tested class(es) and the cost. Included will also be an application for a scholarship to help with testing costs. Keep a lookout for this email.

News from SEE (Social, Emotional, Ethical learning)

The purpose of SEE learning is to help students explore and investigate how they can best take care of themselves and each other, specifically with regard to their emotional and social health. This will allow students to flourish and make sound decisions that benefit themselves and others. Here is a quick glance at the purpose of the SEE curriculum.


On 10/9/19 the students had their second SEE learning experience with their Experiential Education groups. The learning objectives were to define and apply the following terms: mindfulness, resiliency zone (grounding, tracking, and resourcing). For more information, please contact Megan Noonan at mnoonan@aspenk12.net.


Upcoming learning experience: Cultivating Attention Part 2

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
