It is the first of the month and your pre-school and/or full day kinder tuition is due.  You can pay online or write a check.  Remember, your deposit has been put towards your September payment so the amount will be less.  Any questions, ask your child's teacher or call the office @ 303-485-6073.  Thank you.



It is time to pay your material fees.  You can pay with a check or through Infinite Campus.  This $10 fee goes to the classrooms to purchase items for all students such as magazines, Time for Kids, and planners.  Thank you for your cooperation.



With Laps for Leadership just around the corner, we need volunteers to sign up either online or through the paper sign-up form sent home last week.  Because we need to have volunteers sign up each year, we ask that everyone register again this year even if they have previously.  Thank you!

100 Mile Club!!

Starting Tuesday, September 5th practice will be held at the track (Altona). We will hold practices Tuesday and Thursdays from 3:15-3:45. Students will only be permitted to walk home with written permission from a parent or guardian. Access to Infinite Campus will not be available after school so parents will not be called if students are not there. Parents are encouraged to come to practice to cheer on students and help scan miles. Also miles can only be counted for parents and adults at 100 Mile Club practices and weekend events. Please provide a valid email as all communications and cancellations will be emailed at least the day before. If the weather is not cooperating, we will be in the kindergarten rooms.
