Running into Summer!

Happy summer huskies! Our school office will be open until 3:30 pm on June 8, and will reopen on Monday, July 25. Have a fabulous summer with family and friends! We'll continue to "Run as One" on the first day of school: Wednesday, August 17. Please note this a 7:50 am start, NOT a late start day. 

Congratulations 5th Graders!

On Monday, May 23, our 5th grade huskies celebrated being "Straight Outta Fifth Grade" as they paraded around the Heatherwood neighborhood led by the Boulder Rural Fire Department truck! The parade followed a fun afternoon for families, including a picnic, a Sing & Sweets concert and the presentation of the continuation certificates in the outdoor hollow.

Paws Up 5th Graders! Good luck in middle school. We will miss you!

Spring Window Painting Event May 7

Paws Up to all of our husky artists and families who came out last Saturday to refresh our school with painted spring windows. Following our school theme: "We Run as One," 31 windows were painted to add color and positive messaging to our community.

Please take a moment to walk around and tour our outdoor gallery.

First Grade, First, Grade How Does your Garden Grow?

First grade huskies started their gardening season by planting lettuce starts on a sunny spring day this week! There was lots of laughing, learning and getting hands dirty in our beautiful school garden! We look forward to being able to serve the lettuce in our school cafeteria on Rainbow Day. The lettuce beds are watered, tucked in, and ready for this week's snow. Thank you Garden to Table!

Custodian Wins Positivity Award!

Paws Up for our very own Ramiz Sirovina, head custodian, who was given a "Ripple of Positivity" Award at the district leadership meeting on Tuesday. Ramiz was nominated by Principal Genna Jaramillo for going above and beyond every day! Among other things, Ramiz prepares and cleans three lunch spaces each day along with interacting with students in a positive way. He works hard to make spaces in the school special. Congrats!

Happy Halloween!

We had a great time at the husky fall parade! Thanks for participating. Our staff theme this year was to dress as anything related to art in keeping with our annual theme book "Drawn Together."

New Gaga Ball Pit!

A big "Husky Thank You" to the 5th Grade Class of 2019 for our awesome new Gaga ball pit! It is already a big hit on the 1st-5th grade playground.
