Big picture

Week 1 is in the record books!

The grand opening of Severance High School was nothing short of AMAZING. The energy and excitement from the students and staff could be felt around the entire building! Just a few things to highlight from this week:

*Students were able to sign their commitment to graduation posters. Thank you to Jostens for the commitment to graduation bracelets for each student. 100% graduation rate is the goal for every student at SHS!

*Shout out to Chick Fil A of Timnath! Chick Fil A was on campus on Wednesday greeting every student with FREE breakfast sandwiches! Did you know that Severance is a Chick Fil A school. At every HOME game Chick Fil A sandwiches will be in our concession stands.

*HUGE Thank you to the FFA Alumni in our community. The FFA Alum provided an amazing lunch to all of our students and staff on the first day of school. We are thankful for the support and excited to start our FFA chapter at SHS.

*The community support has been outstanding...we would like to recognize the generosity of Journey Homes and First Advantage Bank for the donation of our school golf cart, from Colorado Kustom Carts! This cart will be used to monitor our campus daily and is a very useful addition to SHS. Thank you Journey Homes, First Advantage Bank and Colorado Kustom Carts!

*In the preparation for our students our staff was treated to many special treats from: John McGee of High Point Financial Group, Susan Krantz of Horrace Mann Insurance, Windsor Chamber of Commerce, our neighboring schools and Weld RE-4 organizations (SMS, WHS, WSEA), and Generations Church.

Enjoy your weekend...week 2 will be here before you know it!
