Good Day, 

Yesterday we celebrated Earth Day!   We do live on a beautiful planet and one that deserves respect and ongoing observances.  Our students celebrated by cleaning up our garden and by planting seeds for indoor growing.   Our teachers reinforced the love we have for our planet and the need to take care of it.  It continues to inspire us  to see so many students in so many grade levels conveying their love of learning and knowledge in a variety of approaches.

Transportation was discussed at the Board of Education meeting last night.  Thanks to so many of you that spoke on behalf of Bill Roberts about the proposed bell time change.  Efforts are never  wasted, regardless of the outcome.  I did hear from Jim Carpenter, Interim Chief Operating Officer for DPS.  He will be responding to the public comment from BR parents who spoke last night.  We look forward to his responses!!

Thanks and enjoy the spring weekend. 

Trich, Erik & Katheryn
