Discovery camps offer preview of innovation school
Has your child ever built an entire city of Legos? Do your
kids love to explore the outdoors, picking up bugs and rocks, and getting
dirty? Do you have a budding chef or fashion designer in your home?
All students in grades 1-7 are invited to indulge their
exploratory side and take part in four free Discovery Camps, hosted as a
preview to the learning students will be engaged in at the proposed Fred
Tjardes School of Innovation, slated to open in Greeley-Evans School District 6
Four free Discovery Camps will be held monthly through
December, and will feature the hands-on learning and collaborative discovery
that will be a feature of the Fred Tjardes School of Innovation. The camps are
free, but parents can contribute to the supplies and snacks their child will
receive during the day. The dates and locations of the Discovery Camps are:
and Friday, October 6 and 7 from 4:30-7:30 p.m., location to be announced. This
camp will allow children to create fashion from recycled materials.
November 12 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Poudre Learning Center, 8313 West F
Street, Greeley. Children will explore nature with hands-on lessons and
up-close encounters with real animals.
December 16 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at the District 6 Service Center, 2508 4th
Avenue in Greeley. This camp is Chopped – The Global Holiday Edition. Based on
the popular food show, students will create dishes from a set of ingredients in
a timed, friendly competition.
To register for these camps, visit the Web Store on the
District 6 website at www.greeleyschools.org. Click on Web Store on the left
side of the home page and then click on the Fred Tjardes School icon. For more

District 6 is in the planning stages for the Fred Tjardes
School of Innovation. Named after a District 6 educator, the school will be
project-based, meeting Colorado State Standards through a hands-on curriculum
and instruction. The Board of Education will consider approving the school
moving forward early next year. If approved, the district plans to apply for
innovation status for the school through the Colorado Department of Education
in the spring of 2017, and open in August 2017.

School Based Mentoring Recruitment
The School-Based Mentoring Program is a joint venture between Partners Mentoring Youth at Madison, Meeker and Brentwood schools. We are currently recruiting volunteers for the 2016-2017 school year to provide one-to-one mentoring services in these schools to students who are facing significant challenges in their social, academic, and/or personal lives. Volunteers (School-Based Mentors) spend a minimum of 1 hour each week with a student (Junior Partner) and commit for at least one academic year. Matches are based on the needs of the youth, as well as on schedules, personalities, and interests of both the Junior Partners and School Based Mentor. Partnerships decide how they spend their time together; activities could include eating lunch together, playing games, shooting hoops, or just hanging out. Partners also has community mentoring opportunities available at this time. Please contact Vanessa Polansky at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-484-7123 to learn more. Mentors are required to pass a thorough screening process.
Bad weather reminder:
As we enter the cold weather season, please be reminded that any school closures will first be posted here and on the District 6 Facebook page at www.facebook.com/greeleyevansschools. If you do not see a closure message in those two locations, then school is open as usual. We do not contact local and Denver media until after we post the message in those locations, as well as send a call out to all parents via School Messenger. This is your first and best source of information for any emergency closures. It is very rare in Greeley and Evans that we have to close school because our district is contained to the urban area and our buses can usually run even in bad weather. So please make sure your children are dressed for the cold and snow. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!
Recordatorio de mal clima:
Mientras llega la temporada de mal tiempo, por favor acuérdense que cualquier cierre escolar será publicado aquí primero y en la página de Facebook del Distrito 6 en www.facebook.com/greeleyevansschools. Si no encuentra un mensaje de cierre en estos dos lugares, entonces la escuela está abierta con su horario normal. No nos comunicamos con los medios locales ni de Denver hasta después de haber publicado el mensaje en estas páginas, y también habría una llamada a los padres de parte del sistema School Messenger. Este es su mejor y primer recurso para infamación por cualquier cierre de emergencia. Es muy raro en Greeley y Evans que tengamos que cerrar las escuelas ya que nuestro distrito se encuentra en un área urbana y nuestros camiones usualmente pueden andar aun en mal tiempo. Por lo tanto, por favor asegúrense que sus hijos estén vestidos apropiadamente para el frio y la nieve. ¡Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener a sus hijos seguros
Weather and temperature changes in Colorado can often be very difficult to predict. It can be very cold in the morning when your child leaves from school, but often by lunch time, the temperature will have completely changed. The higher elevation, clear skies and wind can quickly effect our perception of how warm or cold it might feel outside.
In the event of inclement weather, such as temperature below 15 degrees Fahrenheit, heavy snow, sleet, etc., children will come inside upon arrival at school and/or stay inside at lunch-recess.
When the temperature reading is 15 degrees (with wind chill), or above, the school will consider if it is appropriate for the children to play outside for recess.
New for the 2016-2017 school year, the Nutrition Services Department will no longer be distributing/providing paper copies of the menu. Our departmental theme for the coming year is to ‘embrace technology’! Implementing paperless menus aligns with this focus. We began notifying our customers (students, parents, guardians, etc.) when this decision was made in April.
• Menus are available online. On the District 6 homepage these is a quick link on the top, left for Menus. Clicking on this link will take customers to Nutrislice (our online menu platform). Or you can click here.
• Menus can be printed very easily directly from the Nutrislice website.
• FREE menu app is available for smart phones. Search for Nutrislice to download.
• This information will be shared via social media to our customers—D6 Nutrition Facebook, etc.)
• Every school will receive business size cards advertising our transition to paperless menus (plus instructions for accessing menus online or via the Nutrislice app). These cards can be distributed to students, parents, guardians, etc. who have questions about the lack of paper menus.
Please direct any additional questions, concerns or suggestions to Jeremy West or Kara Sample at email@example.com – 970-348-6607.
