Open House - Next Week

The Mancos RE-6 School District would like to invite you to join students and staff to celebrate the work they have accomplished through PBL and Science Fair projects during the 2021-22 school year. The event will take place on Thursday, March 10th from 5:00pm - 8:00pm in the cafeteria and gymnasium of the elementary school.

This annual event, which we were not able to host last year, is an opportunity for students, teachers, parents, and anyone from our regional community to gather together and celebrate the work that has been done in our schools and community. Our ability to remain open to in-person learning this year has been challenging, and it has taken a lot of dedication, extra and unfamiliar duties, and tremendous flexibility from our students and staff to adapt. Our Open House is an opportunity to shine a light on the great work they have done, in spite of the challenges faced. It is not only a celebration of learning, but also resilience.

Please join us to view and discuss student projects, chat with students and teachers, appreciate our renovated spaces, and most importantly support the heart & soul of our community. If that’s not enough, come to feast at the yummy potato bar for a small fee to help raise funds for the junior class’ prom!

Future Transportation Plans

Mancos Transportation Department will be making new snow routes for the 2-

hour delay days starting March 07, 2022. The snow day routes will be shorter and require

parents to drop off students closer to the district’s main roadways. The new routes on the two-hour delay days are necessary because the current routes are not safely accessible by school buses in inclement weather. Those affected will be notified directly about the new snow routes by March 07, 2022.

After School Weight Lifting Program

Mr. Gardner will start the after school weight lifting program for high school and middle school students every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday beginning March 1st.

Times will be 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm.

Deer Hill Scholarship

"Deer Hill Expeditions is a local, Mancos-based summer adventure program for teens that has been delivering transformational experiences since 1984. Deer Hill provides enriching wilderness and service experiences in the American Southwest, designed to foster personal growth and cultivate a greater sense of self and community.

Summer Expeditions with Deer Hill are roughly three weeks long, and lead participants into some of the most enriching places of the Colorado Plateau. Wilderness activities can include multi-day white water river expeditions, technical canyoneering, mountain backpacking, peak ascents, and rock climbing. Community service projects take place with Native American service hosts on the Navajo Nation and with the Hopi and Zuni Pueblos.

Deer Hill has once again partnered with Osprey to create a scholarship for a local teen to participate in one of our summer programs tuition free. The scholarship recipient will also receive a free 70-liter backpack from Osprey to use on their expedition and take home afterwards! This is a need-based scholarship with a small essay component. All applications are due by April 1st. Recipients must be 13-18 years old to qualify.
