Our Staff Is The Difference
We have amazing staff members that truly care about the work they do, how they come up with new ways to continually inspire the students, and how they are able to push each students’ learning potential. Here’s a few of their stories…

Jared Polis Award
Mrs. Thyre, one of our awesome Kindergarten teachers, won the 2018 Jared Polis Award. Along with the award, Mrs. T earned grant monies given to her and to the school. The school has purchased additional equipment that is being used by our Kindergarten teachers. Way to Go Mrs. T.
Commitment to Character
Mrs. Stavrevski – Mrs. S. has created a way for students to show who they really are through their demonstration of different characteristic traits. Each month students can be nominated by a staff member for displaying an action that makes them stand out from their peers. These are traits that help to make the students stronger as individuals inside and out of the classroom.
