Welcome! Somos Dos Rios!
Dear Dos Rios Community:
It takes a great deal of commitment and professionalism to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, authorized to deliver an IB programme. Dos Rios Elementary School is fully authorized to deliver the Primary Years Programme as an IB World School! IB World Schools are a worldwide community of schools that share a common philosophy of aiming to create a better, more peaceful world and a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education. Presently there are 4,784 IB World Schools with 52 in Colorado.
Dos Rios embarked on the IB journey in Spring 2015, becoming a Candidate school. Over the past three years, students and staff have engaged in new ways of learning and teaching. An IB education promotes critical thinking through inquiring, responding to real-life experiences, taking action, and reflecting. Dos Rios is also focused on growing students who are well-rounded, internationally-minded, life-long learners. Students learn how local and global issues are connected. Additionally, all students engage in Spanish and culture as part of their weekly specials rotations, and our library has experienced a transformation to become a knowledge and culture hub for learning.
Greeley-Evans School District 6 now offers a continuum of three International Baccalaureate educational programs. Dos Rios Elementary School Primary Years Programme, for students ages 4-12, focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. Brentwood Middle School and Greeley West High School Middle Years Programme, for students ages 11 to 16, provides a framework of academic challenge, which encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world to become critical, reflective thinkers. Greeley West High School Diploma Programme, for students ages 16 to 19, is an academically challenging balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students for success at university and life beyond. The IB experience is not just a way to better learning, it is a way to a better world.
We are excited to continue this journey at deeper levels with students, staff, parents, and the community.
As always, please contact us with any questions. Muchas gracias!Dr. Matt ThompsonDos Rios Principal(970) 348-1300

District 6 Headlines
In Greeley-Evans School District 6, our students, families and staff are the stars. They work hard every day to ensure our schools are providing the best education possible. To honor our true stars, District 6 today is unveiling its new logo and brand, which reflects the school district's values and goals for student learning. The new logo includes the star image from the previous logo, as well as the “I’m District 6” tagline, which has been used since 2016 to reflect unity and pride in District 6.
A Denver news show has helped raise more than $50,000 to pay off outstanding student meal debt in Greeley-Evans School District 6.
Update: Food4Success, a campaign to pay off student meal debt ran by The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans Schools, is nearing $100,000 in donations, according to Success Foundation Executive Director Julie Hill, and an upcoming golf tournament could help push the campaign towards it's goal of paying off more than $147,000 in unpaid student meal debt.
This week, we made the difficult decision to switch to remote learning for two of our elementary schools: Madison and Billie Martinez. I wanted to update you on this decision, provide you some important information and resources, and give you some guidance how you can help us keep schools open. I urge you to read this entire communication. It is important.
Residents of Greeley-Evans School District 6 are invited to submit their suggestions for naming the new preschool-eighth grades school that will be constructed in West Greeley and open in Fall of 2022. The new school will be located near Boomerang Golf Course off 71st Avenue, between 4th and 10th Street. This is the first new school to be constructed in Greeley-Evans School District 6 - that isn’t replacing an existing school - since 2003, and the first time additional classrooms have been added to the district in 20 years.
Thank you for helping us have a successful first week of school and for continuing to trust us to serve your children's learning needs. While most of your children are coming to school in-person, we also know that some of you have chosen to have your children attend school through our online option. We are excited to have students in online or in-person school, and we want to thank you for partnering with us to get our students back to learning. We know there have been glitches for some families, but we will continue to work through those with you. This letter contains important information for families who are accessing both in-person and online learning. Please make sure you read the sections of this letter with information pertaining to your child(ren).
