  • Principal, mascot, colors selected for Tointon Academy

    Posted by GIZEH MARTINEZ on 10/19/2021

    Justin Ungeheuer, a veteran administrator in Greeley-Evans School District 6, will become the principal at the new Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering, which will open in August of 2022.


    With 14 years of experience serving as a school administrator, Ungeheuer is currently the principal at Monfort Elementary School, where he has served for six years. He will maintain the position at Monfort until a new leader is hired to take over at the school.


    Since 2008 Ungeheuer has served District 6 as the assistant principal and principal at East Memorial Elementary School, and co-principal at Bella Romero K-8 Academy of Applied Technology. At Bella Romero he co-lead the restructuring and reopening of two elementary schools to a single, two campus K-8.


    “I am excited that Mr. Ungeheuer agreed to move to this position,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “We are fortunate to have his breadth of leadership and experience as we open the Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering.


    The Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering will focus on teaching students engineering concepts and career awareness across grade levels and content areas. District 6 has selected Project Lead the Way as the curriculum for the engineering focus and is working on partnering with a Colorado college of engineering and local engineers. The school will still have the core subject areas of math, literacy, science and social studies, as well as electives such as music, physical education, art and more.


    In addition, a committee of teachers, staff, administrators, parents and community members recently selected a new mascot and colors for the Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering. Students attending Tointon Academy will be known as the Engineers, and the school colors will be a slate blue, orange and lime green. The committee worked with the architects on the project to review color palates before making the selection.


    When the school opens, the staff and students will help select a new animal or themed mascot that will be used in conjunction with the Engineers.
