Upcoming Events
Spring Conferences Date Correction Last week’s email said that conferences were Feb. 16th & 17th.  The correct dates are Feb. 15th & 16th.  Teachers will be sending sign-up links through IC messenger this week, so that you can sign up for a conference spot.

Masks No Longer Required, but highly encouraged in district schools and buildings.  Masks will no longer be required, but I know that many people will choose to continue wearing masks. Please talk with your student and make the decision that is best for your family, and we will be honoring this in the building and classrooms.  We will continue to provide masks to anyone that needs one.

Immunization Data  CDPHE now requires each school to provide an immunization letter to all students' parents/guardians by February 15th.  Please find annual immunization data for the 2020-2021 school year. Please Contact the Health Office or District Nurse with questions or concerns.

Resource for Students Who Did NOT Get Their COVID Testing Incentives Students who were signed up for the State COVID testing and did not get their gift cards in the mail here is a resource at the state for you to reach out to.  Students who tested in October should receive these incentives in November. Students who participated in testing during the month of November should receive incentives in December. If you have questions about the status of these incentives, please email

First Semester Grades are completed and updated in Infinite Campus (IC).  We encourage you to look at these and talk to your students. See this link English  or español for directions on how to check your students’ grades in IC. 

As you may know, all Adams 12 Middle Schools use a 1,2,3,4 grading system for all classes.  For each class, you will see many of these numbers.  That is because a teacher must grade students in many different learning standards for each class. A “1” indicates a student failed that learning standard.  A “2” or “3” is passing, and a “4” exceeds expectations.

Below you can find more detailed information.

A report card should never be the only communication tool between the school and guardians. You are always welcome to email teachers with questions or concerns.

Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States; beginning on Tuesday February 1st ending on Tuesday March 1st. 

We are highlighting Black and African American contributions to the mental health movement because they are oftentimes overlooked. Without recognizing the lack of representation of Black and African American people in the mental health movement, we do a disservice and continue to inflict harm. Black Americans' contributions to the field of mental health has been long overlooked. The following are trailblazers in the black community and in the mental health movement:

Bebe Moore Campbell
Herman George Canday, Ph.D.
E. Kitch Childs, Ph.D.
