Mentors Needed -- Please Read!

Mentors Needed -- Please Read!

It is never easy to transition to a new school.  We would love it if each new family had a point person to help them understand our events and activities. That is what our mentor program is all about.  A small time commitment can make a big difference to an incoming family.  We provide a script of important facts/terms/dates for you to share with a new family. We have a fun Meet your Mentor event in August. We need mentors for kindergarten, 1/2 and 6 & 7 grade. Can you help?

Scenes from Winter Sports

This week our 3 & 4 graders were joined by their 7 & 8 grade buddies for an overnight at Snow Mountain Ranch. They skied, snowshoed, learned to build survival structures, tubed, climbed, sang, and shot arrows. Much of what was learned included risk-taking, team-building & collaboration.

We would like to take a moment to celebrate all of those students who made this year’s GeoBee a success. We are proud of the time and effort that they put into deepening their understanding of our world.

Thank you to everyone who helped make January’s Pop-Up Diversity and Inclusion Library a great success! If you still have books at home, please return them to the baskets in the front office next week. Most books were borrowed from Boulder Library on personal cards and we would like to ensure those individuals’ cards are cleared. If you would like to continue enjoying a book, please return it directly to the library and check it out on your own card. Many thanks!

Diplomats' Book Fair Fundraising Event

The Diplomats Club is a group of 7/8th grade students changing our world through community service, student life and leadership.  This fall we received a request to partner with an elementary school in Denver that is highly econmically impacted. Literacy is so critical for our students and we’d like to enrich their community with new books that they can choose at the book fair.    The students at Fairview Elementary School in Denver, CO. will receive a visit from our Diplomats this spring to share their passion for reading. 

Our dream is to bring a book fair to the school, allowing each and every student the chance to pick out any book they find interesting and be able to take that book or activity home with them.  We hope to provide up to $20.00 for every student at Fairview Elementary.  

The Diplomats have accepted the challenge and is making this wish into reality by offering bakery & book sales:  February 21 & 28 after school AND has even created a GoFundMe page to help with the effort.  

Select the GoFundMe Community Donation Page to participate in the book fair project. 

Thanks so much for your generosity and support for this student-led project. 

Any questions may be directed to Diplomat leads of this project: Anya, June, Sydney, Rheya and Quinnie.


Project sponsors: Gretchen Rech & the Carmel Hill Fund, non-profit focused on connecting kids to books – along with Karen, Ryan and Sherry Co-Advisors to our HK8 Diplomats Club
