  • Football, Spirit, Marching Band returns to D6 on Oct. 8

    Posted by KIM DESMOND on 10/7/2020 3:00:00 PM

    Football will return to Greeley-Evans School District 6 Stadium beginning Thursday, October 8, and it will look very different from previous years.

     

    Due to COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, general admission will not be permitted at any game. Student players, members of the Spirit Team and members of the marching band will be issued a very limited amount of ticket vouchers to share with family and friends. These vouchers will be exchanged for paid tickets at the stadium, and only credit cards will be accepted. Seating will be designated and all attendees must wear a face covering to enter and during the game.

     

    No concessions will be sold, but attendees can bring one individual non-glass drink container. Spectators will be asked to leave the stadium and parking lot immediately after the game.

     

    All schools will play six games, with an option for a seventh game to be determined later.

     

    The first game scheduled for October 8, Greeley Central High School versus Windsor High School, will be livestreamed on the District 6 YouTube Channel at Some games will be broadcast live on the District 6 You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/greeleyschools

  • Northridge STEM Academy earns distinguished honor

    Posted by KIM DESMOND on 10/6/2020 9:00:00 AM

    The National Academy Foundation has recognized the Northridge High School STEM Academy as a Distinguished Academy for the 2019-2020 school year. 

     

    This highly competitive distinction recognizes that students in the Northridge STEM Academy are college and career ready, and that the academy mirrors the demographics of the school in the categories of ethnicity, gender, English language learners and students who qualify for free and reduced meals. In addition, 100 percent of the academy's rising seniors participate in paid internships. Northridge far exceeds the NAF expectations in all areas. 

     

    "Our staff and students have worked incredibly hard to reach this level of honor by NAF," said Northridge Principal Insoon Olson. "Due to all of our efforts and over 300 outstanding students, we have met the requirements of Distinguished Level and will continue to focus our efforts in providing a quality academic program with real-world experiences to apply their skills. I am incredibly proud of our Grizzlies and all that they have accomplished by engaging within their choice pathway in our STEM Academy."

     

    The STEM program began at Northridge High School in 2006, with an emphasis on math and science. In 2012-13, the school opened the Academy of Engineering and the academy of Math and Science. The Academy of Information Technology was established in 2015-16. And, in 2018-19, all the academies were restructured into the single STEM Academy. 

     

    In 2014-15, 143 students participated in one or more of the two academies. This year, 242 students are enrolled in the NAF STEM Academy. 

     

    Northridge officially received this honor during the NAF Next 2020 Annual Academy Conference this summer.

  • Community partners help pay off student meal debt

    Posted by KIM DESMOND on 10/5/2020 3:00:00 PM

    Today, all accumulated student meal debt was erased in Greeley-Evans School District 6 thanks to the help of some amazing community partners. 

     

    Food4Success is a fundraising campaign sponsored by The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans Schools. The goal of the campaign is to raise funds to help pay off accumulated student meal debt accrued through the District 6 Nutrition Services Department. When students who do not qualify for free meals cannot pay for a meal, they still receive same lunch or breakfast that other students receive. However, if the meal debt isn't eventually paid by families, then  District 6 must pay for that debt out of its general fund. 

     

    At the beginning of this school year, District 6 had $147,000 in meal debt. Today, that amount is zero. 

     

    Adolfson and Peterson, the contractor building the new Greeley West High School, hosted a golf tournament for its subcontractors at the Greeley Country Club Monday, October 5 to raise money for Food4Success. The event raised $40,000.

     

    "Being part of this Greeley West project has meant a lot to us, as well as the other companies working on the building," said Doug Johnson, vice president of Adolfson and Peterson. "It is a privilege for us to be able to give back to the community."

     

    In addition, last week Atmos Energy also donated $25,000 to the Food4Success campaign. This, coupled with the golf tournament proceeds, raised enough to pay off the current outstanding meal debt balance. 

     

    "Words cannot begin to express our deep gratitude for the community's amazing support for Food4Success," said Danielle Bock, director of nutrition Services for District 6. "This is a huge relief to many of our families who simply don't have the means to pay off this debt. And it will preserve funding for other District 6 programs that may have suffered cuts to pay for this debt."

     

    Food4Success got its first boost a few weeks ago when the program was featured on The Kyle Clark Show on 9News. Clark does a weekly fundraising campaign for selected non-profits. The publicity from that show brought in more than $90,000 in donations statewide. 

     

    "I just want to thank the community and those around the state who supported this campaign," said District 6 Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. "Having so many rally around our students in this challenging time gives us hope and renewed energy to continue the important work of educating our children. We are incredibly grateful."
