Today, Governor Jared Polis announced a new special recognition for 21 schools across the state, including three from District 60, that have demonstrated strong growth in student achievement since 2019. The selected schools, which include Irving Elementary, Heritage Elementary and Franklin School of Innovation, have demonstrated excellence and the ability to advance learning through challenging times.
As October is designated as Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the District hosted its first Cybersecurity Awareness Month Poster and Video Contest. Open to scholars at all grade levels, the competition was designed to promote the safe and secure use of the internet while encouraging students to make better decisions when posting pictures, videos, and personal information online.
In its seventh incarnation, Pride and Patriotism once again saw District scholars, from elementary through high school, express their gratitude to those who served – and in many instances continue to serve – in the written word, artistic expression and song.
Pueblo’s last living Medal of Honor recipient, and the face of Pueblo as the “Home of Heroes,” Mr. Dix will be the guest speaker at the District’s Pride and Patriotism tribute to veterans, which begins at 6 p.m. November 10 at Memorial Hall.
