D93 Family Update
May 25, 2023
After spending the past 13 years in school, our graduating seniors are ready to take the next step in their lives. After their 9th grade year was cut short by statewide school closures, the next two years of school for this class was anything but typical as we faced an unprecedented worldwide pandemic.
I am proud of these kids, their families, their teachers, and all of our employees who helped them to not just endure, but to overcome these challenges. Their graduation is a testament to the their tenacity and the incredible support of our community for D93 schools.
All of our graduations are scheduled to be streamed live on our YouTube channel. The Mountain America Center has given us links in advance for the graduation ceremonies being held in their facility.

Great Things Happening in D93

Sixth Grade Track Meet
Hundreds of D93 sixth graders participated in the annual track meet this week. Students represented their schools in a variety of events, including the football toss, the softball toss, and relays. The north went first, competing at Thunder Stadium on Tuesday. The south met up at Thunder Ridge Stadium on Thursday. Minus a few sprinkles, the weather could not have been better for both the north and the south.
