PUNKIN CHUNKIN A BIG SUCCESS
Thank you Alpine Education Foundation, Kiwanis and the Veterans of Foreign Wars for funding and supporting the fourth-grade Punkin Chunkin. The experience and the knowledge the students gained is priceless!
Check out the video below.
Our Thoughtexchange was a complete success with over 500 ideas submitted and more than 31,000 ratings.
A committee of parents, teachers, staff, community members and administrators have been hard at work identifying key themes and priorities and are working on crafting potential ideas to improve our District.
At present, our committee is working on the following topics: increasing enrollment and effectively utilizing facilities; improving programs and rigor in the classroom; identifying ways to promote the excellent programs and work occurring across the District; and developing options for a high school.
Thank you for participating and sharing your thoughts with us! As the committee's work continues we will update you with their progress.

KEEPING OUR CAMPUSES SAFE AND SECURE
We have been working with our local law enforcement agencies to identify ways to increase the safety and security of our campuses. Over the winter break, we will be installing security fencing in the front of JMMS. Our goal is to maintain the beauty of our campuses, keep our children safe and secure the perimeters of our schools.
