I am reminded this week how much and how often our teachers go above and beyond for our children to provide them with exceptional and unique learning activities. The 4th grade teachers are braving rain and snow in Keystone this week, not to mention managing seventy-four excited 9 year olds 24/7, to provide my fourth grader and all of his classmates the opportunity to explore our Colorado ecosystems in the mountains. This priceless experience is possible because our teachers are passionate about educating our enthusiastic learners. My hope is that as parents we can all be as passionate about supporting our teachers and our school in any way we can. By working together, we can keep these amazing learning opportunities available for every child that comes through the doors of Polaris.
As always, thanks for doing what you can!
